[resolved] Plugin drawing high resources ? (3 posts)

    I use this plugin on two websites where the web host has shut down the website due to high resource pulls.

    This has happened in the last 2-3 weeks since your new release. Do think there is anything in the plugin that could be causing this?

    Further, when I run exploit scanner to look for hacks and malware, there are many files in the backwpup plugin that appear in the results with base64_decode. Can you verify that the plugin is clean?

    Thank you.

    Yes, the plugin is clean. The Plugin has some functions that needs base64_decode.

    To reduce the server load you can try the option under settings -> jobs.

    Thanks for getting back to me Daniel,
    I'll change that setting and hope it resolves the load issue. I think your plugin is terrific and would hate to have to stop using it.
    Cheers -
