  • Hi,
    I’m the author of the BackWPup Plugin.
    I have the following Problem and hop you can help me.

    I can see and have useres of my Plugin they say me that:
    On shedueld Backups (wp-cron) the backup will made multibele times.
    If i have a system without W3 Total Cache there are no Problems.

    Can you help me resolve this Problem.

    The settings of the job will storred in the wp Options. I wirte a timestamp in when teh next run is.

    I have made a shedule that run every 5 min. but i see the the job runs all 1-3 mins.

  • It is probably because w3 total cache, actually caches the wp-cron which causes some issues.

    There does appear to be a connection between W3 Total Cache and the BackWPup plugin carrying out too many backups.

    Per Daniel’s instructions I ran my system with W3 Total Cache disabled when my backup job kicked in last night.

    This morning I see that only ONE backup job ran. So whilst that is not conclusive it certainly looks like there is an issue between the two plugins.

    Until a fix comes along I guess you have a ‘choice’ to disable W3 Total Cache or live with multiple backups or find another way to backup your WP database and files.

    For the Author of w3 total cache
    how cann i disabele caching on wp-cron.php jobs completly ?
    I have all things added from you faq and the job runs multiple again!

    I am not the plugin author but I solved the issue by manually invoking wp-cron through a cron job and disabling it through backwpup.

    Daniel, perhaps you can send me an email and we can work though some test cases?
