[resolved] Backup is only 10% of database (3 posts)

    I have a 152MB (as reported by BackUpWordpress) database on an overloaded shared server.

    If I do a manual backup, everything appears to work, but the resulting zip file is only 15MB.

    I'm guessing the server just runs out of memory.

    If anyone can suggest a solution I would be most appreciative.

    That actually sounds about right, databases normally achieve around 10x compression when zipped. I suggest downloading the backup and checking in it to see if the database dump is correct.

    That sure is an impressive response time, Tom.

    And to a dumb question; yes, when I download and un-zip the backup file it ends up the size I expected.

    Sorry for the unnecessary noise.
