    Hello, i'me getting the following error in my log file each time i try to back up.

    code E_WARNING: proc_open() has been disabled for security reasons (line 1064, wp-content/plugins/updraftplus/updraftplus.php)

    Backing up to unlimited webspace via ftp. Also my website is only using 1/10th of its allowance. I'm not seeing this error in connection with the plugin elsewhere, what could be the problem? The backup is not happening at all, just keeps re-scheduling.

    Sounds like proc_open() isn't just disabled on your web server, but causes PHP to crash if tried. Try adding this to your wp-config.php:

    define('UPDRAFTPLUS_MYSQLDUMP_EXECUTABLE', '');
    define('UPDRAFTPLUS_NO_BINZIP', true);

    Best wishes,
    David
