Support » Plugin: WordPress Backup to Dropbox » core SQL dump uploaded in 'wp-content' instead of 'wp-content/backups'

  • Resolved Gaerwn



    Plugin seems to work fine, with one exception – the core SQL dump file is not uploaded in ‘wp-content/backups’:

    • the SQL dump files are written to ‘wp-content/backups’
    • ‘[database name]-backup-plugins.sql’ is uploaded to Dropbox in ‘wp-content/backups’
    • ‘[database name]-backup-core.sql’ is uploaded to Dropbox in ‘wp-content’ under the name ‘backups[database name]-backup-core.sql’

    Plugin log:

    Uploaded Files:[{"file":"wp-content\/backups\/[database name]-backup-core.sql","mtime":1355215025}]
    11:01:18: Approximately 97% complete.
    Uploaded Files:[{"file":"wp-content\/backups\/[database name]-backup-plugins.sql","mtime":1355215026}]

    Other info:

    • plugin version is 1.4.1, installed 2 days ago
    • ‘wpb2d’ folder was renamed
    • first backup was completed after 23 hours (second backup completed in aprox. 1 hour)
    • the size of core SQL dump is aprox. 47MB; the plugin SQL dump is smaller aprox. 1MB

    Should I worry about the core database backup location?

    Thank you

    I will need to do some testing to see if I can replicate this issue.

    I found the issue.

    The new Dropbox API lib for chunked uploads was inconsistent with that of normal ones so files greater then 10MB (the THRESHOLD) would have been uploaded with the dir concatenated to the file.

    I have pushed a fix for it, please delete and re-install the plugin to get the fix and let me know how it goes.




    After replacing the files:

    • Classes/class-wp-backup-config.php
    • Classes/class-wp-backup.php
    • Dropbox/Dropbox/API.php
    • uninstall.php

    the core SQL dump was uploaded to Dropbox in ‘wp-content/backups’.
    I have an error in the log for plugin SQL dump and a 101% completed backup 🙂

    12:11:02: Backup complete.

    Thanks for the fix
