Backup Problem

  • It appears that my backups are getting hung up. When I perform a backup, I get the following message:

    Your backup is being processed.
    wordpress_files/wp-content/plugins/dashboardopts/Rename appropriate index.php file and place in your wp-admin folder if you do not have a custom setup.txt is too long to be put in a tararchivewordpress_files/wp-content/plugins/dashboardopts/Rename appropriate index.php file and place in your wp-admin folder if you do not have a custom setup.txt is too long to be put in a tararchive

    I would appreciate any help on this.

    Thanks,

  • Not too sure what that problem is…if you are using a plugin to backup your database, what plugin are you using?

    Might want to review WordPress Backups.

    Not using any special plugin. My backups are scheduled in BackupWord Pres. On my dashboard it lits “You have unfinished Backups!” Please finish them manually.

    Not using any special plugin.

    WordPress does not have a native backup process so you must be using a plugin.

    Is it possible you are using this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/backupwordpress/

    If so I will put that plugin’s tag on this thread, and then the plugin author might see this topic and provide an answer.

    Yes, I am using the plugin backupwordpress.

    The same is happening to me with large full backups (above 140mb), but not with sql backups or smaller full backups (~90mb).

    It’s been almost a year and a half since BackUpWordPress was last updated. It’s a pity as it has worked really well. (I must confess I haven’t donated anything to the author, but I have clicked on several interesting ads at the website!).

    Cheers.

    Problem solved, it seems.

    – First deactivated and deleted the plugin.
    – Then deleted the “backup” folder.
    – Went to PHPMyAdmin and deleted the “bkpwp” database entries.
    – Finally reinstalled.

    Checked the logs and the full backup ended nicely.

    Cheers.

    By the way, I’m currently downloading a 235mb backup 🙂

    Also, the “Exclude folder/file” option does not seem to be working.
