    Hi jmayoff,

    Deactivating the plugin and reactivating should have this affect.
    We’ll be adding a cancel button in the future though.

    Well unfortunately deactivating the plugin does not stop a backup process. I deactivated the plugin and activated it again and backup was still running when I clicked on Activity log.

    Hi charlievie,

    Deactivate and delete the plugin, then reinstall it.
    Next version will just require deactivation and reactivation but I think a cancel button might be added just before release.

    Next version has much quicker backup and fixes some hanging issues too if you are experiencing them. You can download a stable beta (if we don’t add cancel button this will become release without any change) from here, “Development Version” under the “Other Versions” list:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wponlinebackup/download/
    You’ll need to uninstall and delete existing plugin and then “Add New” and “Upload”.

    Jason.

    OK, thanks for the quick response. I’ll try it and let you know.

    Well the process was killed, or at least it looked like it until I tried to start a manual backup and it said the backup could not be started because another backup process is already running.

    Even though I clicked on Activity before I started manual backup and made sure nothing is running, after the failed attempt to start backup there was a backup running.

    Hi Charlievie,

    If you do try the new version and it still doesn’t work for you, let me know.

    Jason.

    I’m sorry, but I have to wait until the released version is out. If I install your plugin and my site crashes my boss is going to not only fire me, but probably also sue me.

    Well it’s not that bad, but what I am trying to say is, I am very careful with beta releases, since I cannot afford downtime on my site.

    But thanks anyways.

    Good luck.

    We’re planning to release the Stop Backup button in the version after 2.1.0 (which was just released).
