WordPress Backup to Dropbox
Backup hangs up and does not complete (9 posts)

    I installed the plugin, succesfully linked it to my Dropbox account and also purchased the zip premium plugin.

    When trying to manually creating a zip-backup, the backup won't finish and always hangs at a certain point:

    There's a file created in wp-content/backups but I'm not sure if it's complete.
    Also, nothing gets copied to my Dropbox folder and the status of the backup never completes.

    I also tried to manually create a standard backup (without zip compression), this also does not complete and gives me multiple of these errors:
    There was an error uploading 'xyz' to Dropbox

    Any advise?

    Thanks,
    Max

    How big is the zip file that is created in wp-content/backups?
    What is your PHP memory limit set to?

    Michael, thanks for your response.
    zip file is 158MB, PHP memory limit is at 128MB.

    Does memory limit have to be greater than the zip size?

    Wow that is a decent size zip!

    The Dropbox API has a max upload limit of 150MB so I will need to implement a way of splitting the zip into multiples in order for you to complete your backup.

    Let me see what I can do.

    Great, now we know what's causing the problem.

    There will be more people having backups larger than 150MB so I think the split function would be an essential part of the plugin.

    Please let me know about your progress, eager to have this in working action soon.

    Thanks

    Hey mate,

    I am working on this and a whole bunch of other performance related changes for v1.2 that I will release next week.

    Cheers,
