    weekly is a built in cron reoccurrence.

    Can I ask which version of WordPress you are using?

    I have the same problem. Connect through ftp and go to wp-content > plugins and delete the backupwordpress folder.

    You should be able to use the admin again.

    WordPress 3.5.2, BackupWordpress 2.3, same error!
    If I install manally an older version (2.2.4) all works correctly.

    Thanks in advance for the support.

    Sorry to here you're running into this, I still haven't been able to reproduce the issue on my end. I think it's a conflict with another plugin. Other people have reported success by first deactivating their other plugins before upgrading BackUpWordPress.

    I have deactivated all plugins installed, then I have updated BackupWordpress. Seems to be Ok. Thanks.

    I had the same problem, solved it by deleting the files out of the ftp and re-installing the current version. I didn't run into this on my other WP site, and I have the following on both sites:

    Akismet
    All In One SEO Pack
    Google Analytics for WordPress
    Google XML Sitemaps

    I just ran into this problem for the first time after having backup wordpress installed on many sites. To get around the error, I needed to deactivate Jetpack (v2.3.2), activate BUWP and then re-activate jetpack.

    A note to the author:
    Instead of having the plugin throw an error and stay in a broken state (with no access to the admin panel), can you change the functionality to instead show an alert followed by deactivating the BUWP plugin and returning to the plugins listing.

    Thanks.
    Otherwise, fantastic plugin...great work.

    I just updated BackUpWordPress to the latest version. Also using the newest version of WordPress.

    On the WordPress dashboard, a Server Error was displayed.

    To get around it, I went into my hosting account cPanel and deleted the backupwordpress folder from the WordPress plugins folder.

    I used to really like BackUpWordPress, but there seems to be issues in a few of the most recent updates. I hope these issues get resolved, as BackUpWordPress is the only backup plugin I've found that will backup an entire domain name, not simply the WordPress installation.

    Best luck.

    Hey Travis,

    Sorry you ran into this, it seems to be caused by a conflict with another plugin, you should be fine to simply reactivate the latest version of BackUpWordPress you shouldn't get the error again.

    I'm currently working on a fix and will have it out shortly.

    As jfreake mentioned, I deactivate Jetpack and BackUpWordPress seems to be working fine... Although, I do use a lot of the Jetpack features, so I will leave BackUpWordPress deactivated until the conflict is resolved.

    Thanks for checking in to the issue.

    I had the same issue... thanks to Travis Pflanz whose advice helped me get my website working again (without BackUpWordPress).

    I have Askimet and Jetpack installed.

    I too will be leaving BackUpWordPress deactivated until the conflict is resolved.

    Hi,

    Just to say I just found that Jetpack had a new update this evening... I don't quite understand what they're saying but it seems that Jetpack may have been the culprit: http://jetpack.me/2013/07/26/jetpack-2-3-3/

    At any rate, after I'd updated Jetpack I re-installed BackUpWordPress and everything's working fine.

    Hi,

    I just installed BackUpWordPress but can't seem to choose the backup option "Both Database & files"?! It toggles back to "Database only" when I click "Update"....?

    Eek, I just installed 2.3 and got the fright of the month.

    None of the Admin or control panel functions worked anymore!
    Fortunately the site still worked and was up.

    I came across the post about renaming the backupwordpress directory and everything sprung back into life.

    I then followed the post about installing 2.3 (http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/backupwordpress.2.2.4.zip) and it works as suggested.

    However, I have the plugin upgrade message bugging me to upgrade, but when will I know its safe to upgrade?

    can you try re-installing BackUpWordPress and make sure you're running the latest Jetpack?

    thanks
