  • Resolved grtgrfx


    It seems that WordFence is being flagged as potentially a problem by BackupBuddy when it’s performing backups to remote locations. Database backups complete but full backups fail with timeout errors. I have installed the newest versions of both plugins. Advice?

  • Hi @grtgrfx,

    Can you confirm that full backups complete successfully if you temporarily disable Wordfence?

    If not, it could be that files are too large to be transferred during the allotted PHP maximum runtime.

    Could you check with your hosting provider and ask if they can increase the value of PHP “max_execution_time”.

    Same issue only resolved if i disable wordfence
    Still not aware of a resolution to this ongoing issue.

    Any resolution to this from Wordfence? I am having the same issue. Never completes backup to remote location. Please advise.
