Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » Hundreds of extra Backups

  • I’m having an issue with excessive backups. In fact, my host contacted me because the backups folder was too large. After looking, there were literally thousands of backups, dating back months. There were several from each day. My settings are to keep 1 copy, and to backup every 7 days. And to save via email.

    I deleted all of the extras (or my host was going to suspend my account) and then rechecked the settings and was sure to save them.

    Its been another two weeks, and I’ve got over 900 files in the backup folder again. There is a zip and a .sql for each backup, so that’s about 450 backups. There is clearly something wrong.

    I’m running the latest plugin version.
