Support » Plugin: DBC Backup 2 » Backup File Fails to Open

  • Resolved ewedige


    I’ve setup your plugin and when I use the Backup Now functionality, everything works correctly.

    However, the schedule functionality is not working for me on any of the sites I’ve tried using it on. Each time it runs, I get an entry in the log similar to this:
    Failed To Open: ../wp-content/backup/Backup_04.04.14-02.52.43_ca9874.sql.

    Hi there

    thanks for taking the time to post this – the error is because this newer version of the plugin expected you’re web server to be running at least PHP 5.3. PHP 5.3 uses the newer mysqli connector by default.

    There’s a new fix coming today which address this and continues to use the old mysql connector for anyone using old versions of PHP (ie less than 5.3).

    Note the current stable PHP version is 5.5.11 – so please start getting your server updated.



    Thanks for getting back to me. I checked the version of PHP my host is using and it is 5.4 so it’s more recent than the 5.3 that you’re saying it needs.

    I’m using version 2.3.25 of your plugin and I’m still having the issue of it not being able to open the file.
