BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin
Backup Files Fill The Disk Stoping WP (5 posts)

    I have had previous versions of the plugin running perfectly for a year or so on 3 WP sites. running WP 3.5.1. The new version 3.0.4 seems to ignore the jobs TO:Folder File Deletion Setting and just fills the disk with different versions of the backups until everything stops due to lack of disk space. The backup folder has not changed. The folder exists and and the backup files are being created in the folder. The logs are purged to the correct number of files.

    I have checked the logs. They are not showing the delete attempt has failed for some reason or another. They all have status ok.

    I have a look at this forum.

    I've tested exactly the same configuration of a job backup in version 2.1.17 and in version 3.0.5 to a FTP host. In the older version the rotation happens correctly: the new file is transferred and the oldest file is deleted soon afterwards, like expected. However, in the 3.0.5 version, the new file is transferred, but the oldest could not be removed and the logs register: "ERROR: Can not delete "path/of/file" on FTP server!". I insist, the configuration of two jobs is excactly the same and the names of files have exactly the same structure. Any suggestion about?

    To be more precise: same hosts, origin (separate installations) and destiny (FTP host), same user, same permissions.

    Just to inform that this problem is solved in 3.0.7 version. I've updated now and tested. Everything is working fine with file deletion. Thanks to all.

    Best regards,
