[resolved] backup wordpress - 404 when attempting to download backups (9 posts)

    I go to Tools->Backups, try to download any of the backups listed, I get 404 error.

    It used to work ... not sure when it stopped as I have not attempted to download a backup for a long time.

    i found the same problem on a duplicate website that I did with this plugin.

    what I saw it happens is that the duplicate website that I put on another domain, tends to create the backups in the backup folder of the previous website (that is on the same hosting account). and when I try to download the backup from the duplicate website, I get the same 404 Not found page.

    i managed to download the backup from the folder of the older website.

    can you try uninstalling BackUpWordPress then reinstalling it?

    I tried uninstalling BackUpWordPress, and unfortunately I also still get a 404 when trying to download. Weird as I have tried the plugin on many other sites and never had this issue before.

    I fixed this issue for another user recently. Are you confident updating database fields?

    so the easiest would be to go to yoursite.com/wp-admin/options.php, that will list all the db options and you can edit them there.
    Look for hmbkp_default_path and hmbkp_path and make sure they have the correct values.

    Nice, that worked perfectly. I just messed around with the path and it was all good. Thanks!!
