Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Fatal Error Admin bar not found

  • I was doing an update and I go this fatal error.

    Fatal error: Class ‘BackWPup_Adminbar’ not found in /home/content/61/10383161/html/ on line 241

    I did go to the backwpup.php file and here is what I have in that file.

    public function plugin_init() {

    //Add Admin Bar
    if ( ! defined( ‘DOING_CRON’ ) && current_user_can( ‘backwpup’ ) && current_user_can( ‘backwpup’ ) && is_admin_bar_showing() && get_site_option( ‘backwpup_cfg_showadminbar’, FALSE ) )

    I am not sure what the code is supposed to be or how to fix it. Does anyone have any pointers on what to do.

    Hi schu48,

    our plugin will autoload the used class. Please ensure that the file “class-adminbar.php” exists in the subfolder “inc” of the plugin. If it exists please tell me your PHP version.


    Hi Robert I have the same problem – I am locked out of my Dashboard completely so can’t do anything.

    This is the exact message except I have Xed out my host username…
    .Fatal error: Class ‘BackWPup_Adminbar’ not found in /home/XXXXXX/public_html/wp-content/plugins/backwpup/backwpup.php on line 241

    I am afraid I am not a developer level user but found my way to the file manager on CPanel and can see backwpup in the plugins. I only have a “css” folder no “inc” folder.

    I have no idea what to do next and pretty worried. Can you please advise what to do next? I thought about deleting the backwpup folder in the CPanel Filemanager but I am not game as have no idea if this would make it worse. I am sorry don’t know how to tell you my PHP version.

    Really hoping you can help and give me a detailed path out of this predicament.


    Hi Robert I forgot to mention this also occurred when I did the update of Backwpup.

    If anyone else knows what to on this to get going again would really appreciate the help asap. I basically worked all day Sat and Sun morning on this site so I am worried I have lost this work. I did recent backups using Backwpup which is the very thing locking me out of my site at this time.




    @johnhackwood If the inc folder is missing from your backwpup plugin folder, the plugin can’t work.
    Delete the backwpup folder (including everything inside of it) manually from your plugins folder. After that, log into your site and re-install BackWPup via the Plugins page in WordPress admin.

    Hi Caspar

    Thanks so much for responding. I actually started a new post on this issue and it was resolved. I actually had to rename my plugins folder and then I had got access to the site and install all the plug-ins one by one and I am now all OK. I didn’t reinstall backwpup because at that point I was just glad to get going again and it seemed like for what ever reason it was the problem cause. I straight away did a backup at CPanel so I had a backup somewhere else working (big newbie lesson learned). I will re-instal backwpup again soon.

    I can’t close this post as I didn’t start it.

    thanks again
