    Can you lease test the beta from https://github.com/inpsyde/backwpup

    Same here. It took me from 200+ seconds to 1000+ seconds after the last updated.

    Same answre. Please test the Version from Github and give feadbackt.

    Trying the beta today, the database dump issue resolved, however, now stuck on “Compressing files as TarGz/Zip. Please be patient, this may take a moment.”…

    Test it backup database and a media folder with only 5 image inside it in Zip and TarGz, it took more than 200 seconds, so I abort it…

    Any clues Daniel?

    I, too, have been having issues with the full site database / files backup stalling at “Compressing files…” – I have tried Zip, and TarGZ, I have excluded all but the bare minimum files I feel I need in a back up.

    The database only backup performs fine – 17 seconds and the file is transferred to my Dropbox, as expected. When it attempts the full backup, it stalls and times out and never transfers to my Amazon S3.

    UPDATE~~
    After reading a few more threads here, and although I saw nothing out of the ordinary in my root folder, I excluded the root folder from the backup; it completed in 56 seconds and transferred the TarGz file to my Amazon S3 without a problem.

    If I exclude the root, and check to backup my wp-config, htaccess, etc, I can live with that… as long as it works!

    I too am struggling with getting a backup to run. I am seeing similar errors and did try the github link above. I am still unable to finish.

    I get a 20 min backup with 2 warnings, but the actual file does not contain all of the files in the set.

    The ending line of the archive file ends up being:

    /bin/gtar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

    I have tried a myriad of settings as found in the forums, but not much is helping.

    @danielhuesken

    The Plugin don’t use the system tar function (/bin/gtar:). I must have the full log to see what happens.

    Sorry, didnt realize you had answered this, I ended up removing the plugin and using a different backup program. I think I still have the log though, how can I get it to you?

    I have a similar issue With the Message hanging:
    “”Compressing files as TarGz/Zip. Please be patient, this may take a moment.”…”

    The “moment” takes forever!

    I checked the files in the folder and they seems okay

    So why does not the job ends sucesfully?

    @carlstoyleneu

    Problem is found to be backup of files in some of the active plugins

    I need to Exclude:
    – akismet
    – contact-form-7
    – the-events-calendar
    – wordpress-importer
    – cms-tree-page-view
    – easy-fancybox
    – backwpup

    Then it Works!

    Carl

    @carlstoyleneu

    Forgot to tell that I also needed to exclude Themes

    You’re lucky Carl, mine still stuck when backing up wp_postmeta, though the Job only for database only, no file at all.
    Mine using latest release.
