I asked because I cannot seem to get any of my backwpup jobs to run after v0.7.2. I cannot even get a simple "check db" to run to completion or create a log. (Ok they all start a log file but nothing gets created after the <body style....> tag). The only correlation I can see in your change logs is that v.0.8.0+ requires PHP5. I am running v5.1.6. Does it need to be a higher version than 5.1.6 to get past this issue I am having?
(When I run v0.7.2 I can get a log and a full backup in about 17 seconds. Anything higher and my 'run now' and scheduled jobs produce nothing and run forever.)
