Support » Plugin: Online Backup for WordPress » Error when trying to back-up

  • Resolved LKR


    Hey guys. Just installed this today, tried to back-up and keep getting the same error every time. Any ideas? Thanks!

    A filesystem operation failed while processing ‘Database/OBFW_Database.sql’ for backup.

    Hi LKR,

    Maybe your host has limited space or you have a space quota, and the backup is using it all up so it can’t backup anymore data and fails.

    The message is saying it tried to write some data but only half got written. It looks as though the database backup file reached 121MB (this is before it compresses it) and it couldn’t write any more data.

    It has to backup to an archive locally before it can send online or allow download.



    Thanks Jason! I increased the data quota and it worked. 🙂
