Support » Plugin: BackUpWordPress » [Plugin: BackUpWordPress] Exclude folders from backup

  • I have WP installed at the webroot (not a subfolder). I want to exclude backup of some extra folders I have added to the webroot, like /oldimages. However, when I use /oldimages/ in the excusion box, BackupWordpress backs that folder up anyway.

    How do I block a folder in the webroot from being backed up?

    Also, I have no need to backup WP software itself. Is this automatically excluded, or do I need to manage this in the exclusion box, too?

    Thanks for any help!

    What happens if you add them like this


    Hi Sigmaweb,

    also be sure that if you are backing up multiple items that you are defining each item comma delimited. I remember the first time I was excluding directories didn’t read the directions and was putting each item on a new line so I had.

    In 2.0.1 excluding files has been massively improved.

    Could you give it a go and see if that fixes your issues.
