  • Did you find out how to resolve the issue? I’ve got the same problem. CPanel | PHP Configuration assures me that safe mode is not on, but backupwordpress is throwing the Safe Mode error.

    The code in the plugin which checks whether safe_mode is active or not is very simple.

    Could you add a file with the following code to your server and see what it outputs.

    <?php var_dump( ini_get( 'safe_mode' ) ); ?>

    I made text file xxx.php and put it in sites root the browsed to it and got:

    string(3) "off"

    is it server wide or should i check each site that i want to use this plugin on?

    Thanks for getting on to it Tom. You were right, and I got
    string(1) "1"

    Actually while hunting down a different error I read that you could put a php.ini file in wp-admin. So while I was there I thought I’d try:
    safe_mode = Off

    And the problem went away 😀

    Glad to hear that solved it for you kieransharp.

    givesuccess, the setting can be per site so you’ll need to make sure you test the actual site your getting the BackUpWordPress safe_mode warning on.

    Ok ty i’ll try it on each as i need it then! 🙂

    Then i try to pu it in wp-admin as file php.ini to see if that easier way works for me/them!
