    Hey there @kapson

    I’m sorry you had issues with the premium extension. We aren’t allowed to handle premium support on the forums here, but you can enable support inside your BackUpWordPress admin page or by sending an email direct to us at

    For your info, MCrypt is a security protocol used with PHP to help secure back and forth information. Your host should be able to install it for you if it isn’t already, and you can direct them here for more info (or have them reach out by email if they’d prefer) –

    Thanks for re-routing your request to the proper channel and helping us adhere to WP forum rules!
