WordPress Backup to Dropbox
Backup won't run, Windows server (2 posts)

    I have installed the plugin on my wife server which is a host server and the plugin works superbly. I have installed on our Windows box at the office and it won't backup.

    I did the scheduled post test and that fails. All my cron research seems on Google seems to be based on Unix servers. How do the cron jobs work in Windows? I have curl installed and the PHP info shows it is loaded. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    A manual backup fails as well.

    Best wishes

    Gday Mate,

    Windows servers can be problematic and I am actually not sure how to get cron tasks working.

    You will need to ensure that scheduled posts work before trying to use WPB2D.

    Let me know how you go!
