Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Previous backup files not kept in folder

  • Resolved John



    I have a strange issue only with a single site, although I use the same settings with several other sites that don’t have this issue – including another site on same server:

    – previous backup files are not kept at local and FTP folders, although settings have a value of 5 under settings, File Deletion (Number of files to keep in folder.)

    Any clues?

    Hello John,

    How is the Backup file name configured? Did some sites buckup to the same folder ?

    Hi Daniel,

    Yep, I think the problem was with naming: the filename didn’t include the string “%Y-%m-%d_%H-%i-%s” or any other time stamp. So it was quite logic to be overwritten…

    I edited the title and included the string “%Y-%m-%d_%H-%i-%s” and now it works.
    Good to know, many thanks for your feedback!
