Using backupwordpress version 2.1.3, files from the directory above the wordpress root are also included. This makes the backup is much larger than necessary. WordPress is installed in a sub-directory of the hosting account root but is configured to run from the domain name assigned to the hosting account root as described in the codex at http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory. This means in the General Settings of the dashboard, the site url is http://domain.org, and the wordpress address url is http://domain.org/wordpressfilelocation.
I have deleted backupwordpress and the backup folder in the content folder and reinstalled version 2.1.3 and always get the extra files outside the wordpress root included.
These extra files have not been included in earlier versions. Are the extra files normal in version 2.1.3? If so, could you suggest a workaround. Thanks for a wonderful plugin!
