    I am running BAckWPUp on several sites with no problems but on a new site the backup fails on a Db back up. It works fine on the site files and completes without a problem.

    I have deleted the job and created a new Db back up job but still the same error. I also have the plugin running on a site on the same server and the Db backup works fine.

    Here is the error – it causes the server to go 100% CPU and limiting kicks in:

    Hi @alan555,
    Please go to BackWPup > Settings > Jobs, try to set Maximum Script Execution Time setting to about 25 seconds and reduce server load to medium by going to BackWPUp -> Settings -> Job tab -> Reduce server load, select medium.
    After that, save the setting then try run the job again.
    Is that help?

    Unfortunately it did not fix it. The main site backs up just fine with default settings too so I feel it is just something odd on the database side of the site.

    I have added a different back up solution for the database in the meantime.

    Hi @alan555,
    So I think this solution from stefanp44 may help you 🙂

    My host support came up with a solution this afternoon: if you can set up your server PHP version and activate some PHP extensions, instead of using pdo and mysql, they had me use nd_pdo and nd_mysql.

    I don’t know what it means (yet) but it works, the backup is effective again.

    Hope that useful 🙂
