Support » Plugin: WordPress Backup and Migrate Plugin - Backup Guard » Backup to Dropbox failed

  • Resolved peteborlace


    A client is using Backup Guard Pro (silver), 1.1.20.

    The website can be successfully backed up to the hosting server.

    However, if we try a backup to Dropbox, this always fails with the Max Execution Time limit error. I’ve manually set the Max Execution time to 43,200 seconds (12 hours) so that should not be a problem.

    The whole website is definitely being downloaded (97.55mb) but it is not being uploaded to Dropbox. The client paid for Backup Guard ‘Silver’ specifcally so they could backup to Dropbox. Without this feature working, the client won’t be happy with the service.

    Please advise how we can fix this.

    Thanks in advance,

    First of all, we’ve experienced many many situations when ‘MAX EXECUTION TIMEOUT’ limitation shows a fake number and it doesn’t function as supposed to. You can check it out by simple script which takes a while to make sure if it’s the case. If so, ask your hosting provider to clarify/explain why this happening on your server.

    Have you checked out the following option located in the “Backup Guard” settings section: ‘Do backup with reloads‘? Try to enable this option, then create a new backup to see how this affects on the behavior.
