  • I’ve discovered a thing: if I select only “database”, the backup works.
    Could be a timeout-related issue? the site is about 130 mb




    Backup a 130 MB files is a computer intensive process. I use BackUpWordPress to schedule database only backup. For files backup I do it manually using cPanel’s File Manager once a month.

    Backup (or compressing) large files using File Manager is far better and faster (I think). I regularly backup a single site that have size of about 60 MB and sometimes multiples sites into a single 150+ MB file without any problem using File Manager.

    Many webhost limit the script max. runtime. But I think it will be more tolerable if you’re using cPanel File Manager.

    In most situations BackUpWordPress should be as fast as the cPanel backup, under the hood it uses the same method to zip up your files.

    This isn’t true on some hosts which don’t allow access to the command line zip command.
