Support » Plugin: WordPress Backup to Dropbox » Backup does not start

  • Resolved Brainscrewer



    I’ve just downloaded this plugin since it seems to fit perfectly to my needs. However after installing it, and pressing WP2D -> Back-up Log to start the backup, nothing happens.

    All I can see is ‘You have not run a backup yet. When you do you will see a log of it here.’, after pressing start, you see ‘Loading’ for a second after which the first message appears again.

    I’ve installed Error log – No errors are being shown and the log is empty. I’ve also installed Cron Viewer, and the dropbox functions are also listed there.

    Any advice?

    Do scheduled posts work for you?

    Doesn’t seem to work,

    I’ve even added

    <Files wp-cron.php>
    allow from all
    Satisfy Any

    to my .htaccess, but it still won’t publish posts.

    What is your website?

    It looks like you have a Varnish layer in front of your blog and requests to wp-cron.php are not actually hitting WordPress, hence the reason backups won’t start.

    curl –head {site}/wp-cron.php

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Server: Apache
    X-Powered-By: PHP/5.3.18
    Content-Type: text/html
    Content-Length: 0
    Accept-Ranges: bytes
    Date: Sun, 09 Dec 2012 23:37:22 GMT
    X-Varnish: 1412196925
    Age: 0
    Via: 1.1 varnish
    Connection: keep-alive

    You need to add wp-cron.php to an exclude list within a Varnish VCL.
