Support » Plugin: DreamObjects Backups » Only backing up some sites

    Hi,
    I have recently signed up to dreamobjects cloud services via DreamHost. I have 2 keys (I’m not sure why) and 2 hidden keys. However, only some of my sites are backing up.

    I reset the plugin on these sites on Friday and set them all to an ASAP backup but checking today none have been backed up – there is nothing in the bucket. Perhaps I have installed incorrectly?

    podiatrymed.co.nz
    yvonnelorkin.com
    ericjames.co.nz
    hallconsulting.co.nz
    littleoakspreschool.co.nz
    tubefab.co.nz
    chsgardens.co.nz
    hagleyoval.co.nz

    My dreamhost account is: ID: #2395759

    These accounts are backing up (point to note – the following sites are smaller in size)

    21degrees.co.nz
    charityhospital
    circlepos
    hallconsulting
    leapsandboundspreschool.co.nz
    luxehair
    terraforma
    thirstywork
    u3a
    wikigroup

    Don’t worry about that. You can have as many keys as you want

    That may be why. How big are the ones that don’t update?

    Also did you try running with Debug mode?

    Thanks for that, I can’t quite recall the different sizes and with dreamhost (my new host) I’m not familiar with where to find the sizes.. However, I ran another plugin backup and that stalled at around the 650mb mark so they are between that size and even 1 GB.

    I don’t know how to run with debug mode?

    OK, I’ve started a backup with the debug mode_ this is what I get:
    [2019/09/10 02:27:39] Scheduled weekly backup. Next backup: 12:00 pm
    [2019/09/10 02:27:46] Scheduled ASAP backup in 60 seconds.

    Time now is 20 mins later and I can’t see any action?

    Also, to run a manual backup I have to reset the plugin as that option is disabled.

    Hi Mika,
    Just wondering about what steps I can take to get these sites backed up?
    Thanks, Emma

    Sorry, I was away dealing with family things.

    Are you on a shared host? Around 700megs, depending on how much load your server is under, seems to be the maximum a shared host can manage šŸ™ Usually around 450 megs.

    Sadly that probably means your sites are running out of memory and the backup just can’t finish.

    There’s not much you can do there except go through your wp-content folder and clean up anything that you don’t need. Delete old backups from other apps, for example, remove duplicate folders you know you’re not using, delete old plugins you don’t use anymore etc.
