Error messages when backing up (9 posts)

    I am using version 3.0.10 because of the problems others have been experiencing with the latest version and because I have seen several posters say that they are working well with older versions.

    I have just got the following 2 error messages for one of my sites (along with a couple of warnings):

    ERROR: ZipArchive returns status: (ER_DELETED) Entry has been deleted

    ERROR: Cannot add "wp-includes/js/tinymce/themes/" to zip archive!

    Is there anything I can do to fix up these errors?

    Seems there is an ongoing and unresolvable problem with Backwpup!

    Its a shame because I thought it was an excellent plugin but months now of error messages and no response to questions about error messages means I have been forced to find another backup plugin.

    I'm no expert with backwpup, I'm still trying to get it to install:))
    But, the type of errors you have up there normally are due to:
    1. Permission problems
    2. File or directory does not exist.

    I checked my unzipped file and there is no directory tinymce at all.

    I don't have a fix, but that is the problem:))
    good luck!!

    Thanks for responding. Tinymce is a plugin I am using.

    I have decided to give up on backwpup as I have found an alternative that seems to work really well (for the moment anyway!).

    Good luck getting it to instal.

    What alternative are you switching to? I've also noticed that the errors with BackWPUp have been going on for quite a while now, and it may be time to look for a different option. Thanks in advance for sharing your suggestions!

    I am interested in what you changed to also, bdsr. I might not be able to install, but I sure as heck can delete directories real good:))

    Hello all, I know that many have had issues with this version of BackWPup for that reason I have also posted on my blog another alternative. However this might not be the one you are looking for but for some of my websites this plugin is working wonders. Here is the plugin UpdraftPlus Backup.

    I sill use BackWPup on some sites because it works well.

    Kind regards

    Hi all,

    I am changing over to Online Backup for WordPress.

    mbrsolution - thanks for your input. That sounds like it is worth investigating as well.
