Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Multiple Backups

  • Resolved alanpae



    I have one backup scheduled to do a Database Backup only.

    It is set to run early in the morning and it does.

    The issue is that instead of running only once it seems to run multiple times for up to a half hour and sends all of the backups.

    It’s nice to have a backup it would be nicer if it only sent one.

    The log files show no errors.

    This only started happening with 3.x.

    Please fix.

    Did you have installed W3TC ?

    I had WP Super Cache installed but I removed it last night around 8 PM and then the backup ran several hours later and produced 30 backups. 🙂

    I feel safe but would like just one obviously. 🙂

    The upgrade to 3.03 using the built in WordPress facility did not go well. So I removed the plugin by hand and uploaded the files to the server and then activated it.

    This morning there was just one file. I also changed a few settings. I’ll try to annotate which ones later on today and monitor it for a few more days before I mark it resolved.


    Restart the job on every main step on a working job – Unchecked now

    Changed format from zip to tar.gz – Should be innocuous.

    So it was probably the restart on main step that was causing the issue.

    I will disable the option by default for next relase.

    The option is helfule if you make bigger backup in one job.

    Thanks a lot for using BackWPup and I’m glad I was able to help.

    Most days it’s just the one backup now. Had two backups once.
