Support » Plugin: Snapshot Backup » [Plugin: Snapshot Backup] Backupsize 0MB

  • Hello Jay.
    Seem to be a nice PlugIn, but I get the following, everytime I try to make a snapshot:

    Reading out the Database
    This could take a moment…
    Done!
    Archving your website
    This could take another moment…
    The size of this Snapshot is 0 MB
    Done!

    Any Idea?
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Jörg,

    thanks for trying it out 😉

    This error appears when the backup isn’t being written for some reason. Could you check if your wp-content/uploads folder is writable and if there’s a file that resembles your snapshot? Should end with .tar.

    Which reminds me… I really need to implement folder permission checks in the next version.

    Let me know and we’ll get to the bottom of this.

    Jay- I’m having the same problem. My wp-content/uploads folder is writable (777). Don’t know what the problem is. Any ideas?

    @rdallen21,

    could you let me know if the file is generated at all?

    Jay, I found two .sql files with “snapshot” in the filename. Located in the uploads folder. But that’s all.

    Could you give me access to your site? I’d love to have a look and fix this if I can:

    I’m not getting this error on my server. Who are you hosting with?

    Guys,

    I’ve finally got an answer for you as to why the script runs but the snapshot is 0MB.

    Your host as most likely turned PHP Safe Mode on. If ai do that on my test server, the script executes really fast, finishes without errors but does not create a file at all. I’ll add a check to the next version if I can.

    In the meantime, ask your host to turn PHP Safe Mode off on your account.
