  • I have the same problem. The host is WP Engine. They told me this.

    I looked through your account, and found that one of your plugins was utilizing .git folders which conflicts with our restore points. We do have off site backups which are different than these. In order for the restore points to function, these .git folders would need to be removed. Here’s the location of these.

    ./wp-content/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/js/jquery-colorpicker/.git
    ./wp-content/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/langs/ada/.git

    I removed the files then backups worked. I’d love to keep using this plugin (5 stars!) but wouldn’t want to have to remove .git files every time I update.

    So I’ve got some good news, guys. Our team (at WP Engine) is working on turning this into a non-issue in an upcoming (see: within the next two weeks) code release.

    But it’d still be nice to fix this for the other people who check their site’s code into git.

    That’s great to hear. I’m sure other plugins let .git files slip through too. Backups should work no matter what the content of plugins anyway.

    They left another one in the latest update…

    So thats:

    ./wp-content/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/js/jquery-colorpicker/.git
    ./wp-content/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/langs/ada/.git
    ./wp-content/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/langs/vbnet/.git

    I really wish they could fix this. Its the ONLY plugin that I have this problem with…
