  • Plugin Author Tom Willmot


    Hi Everybody,

    I’ve been hard at work on BackUpWordPress 2.0 and it’s nearly ready, before I release it however I would love to get some beta testers using it to make sure I haven’t missed any major bugs.

    The main new features of 2.0 are

    – Full support for multiple schedules
    – Power new interface for managing excludes
    – More robust core backups engine

    Under the hood it’s a pretty large re-write.

    To help out with testing you just need to download the development version from here

    The unzip it and upload it to your site replacing the existing version of backupwordpress.

  • Is there a Branch on Github? So we could test and issue-track on GitHub?

    It’s already been merged into master on github.

    Feel free to create issues on their too.

    I installed the Beta on my site and have a couple of comments.

    On my 10″ netbook, the “settings” menu is cropped off so I cannot access the buttons.
    The “exclude” menu freezes the site and doesn’t open. I have to recover the page.
    I can backup the database, but the files stall for over 12 hours and never completes a backup.

    good luck working out all the issues.

    when I click “run now” the plugin starts to create backups infinitely. I can see via FTP a 1 completed backup and another one running, forever.

    If I hit “cancel” the completed backup disappears as well as the one in-creation.

    I set the plugin to “manual”

    I’ve now released 2.0 (2.0.1 actually).

    Thanks for all your help both on here and via email.

    There will likely be teething issues as this is a major rewrite.



    I installed the new release, but unfortunately after 24 hours it is still stuck on “creating zip file”

    Could you email and we’ll try to work out why it’s not working for you.
