Online Backup for WordPress
Backup Fails When Site is in Maintenance Mode (3 posts)

    Backups will only succeed when your WP website is online, visible and publicly accessible.

    This might be obvious to old-timers, but it could be worth pointing out that backups using Online Backup For WordPress will fail if they are attempted while your WP website is online but in "Maintenance Mode" via a plugin such as "WP Maintenance Mode". This was not so obvious to me (doh!) while I was building my website online (in Maintenance Mode) and trying to back it up between builds.

    I know better now!!

    Hi Ruben,

    I think Download or Email backups will work fine. I can see why Online Backups would fail since maintenance mode will mean server can't see the blog to communicate. Maybe we can see if there is a way we can get around that though. I'll add it to our feature requests!
