Support » Plugin: Backup and Restore WordPress - Backup Plugin » Red Exclamation Mark Icon – WPBackItUp Encountered Errors

  • Resolved wpwd2016


    This red exclamation icon is in the Admin Toolbar. On a cursor hover, it says “Backup has encountered errors!“.

    I click the button and it takes me to the backup page where the backups are listed. Looking at the page there is nothing there that mentions or shows to be an error, everything appears good and normal listing successful backups.

    As a note, I maintain 2 websites on the same hosting server, so if there was concern about a database or server issue, it likely is not because the 2nd website does not show the warning icon and all is good there.

    Is this a glitch and everything is fine, or is there something wrong that is not showing and needs to be fixed?

    Hi @mwarbinek,
    If your backups are running successfully then it is an issue with that notification. Did your last backup run without any errors?


    Wow, fast, can I hire you for all my support requests?

    All backups show as successful.

    There was one time a backup process went into error, but I cannot remember which website that was. Which ever site, the issue did not persist and all backups completed successfully.

    The red warning icon resolved itself when I did another backup of the website.

    Once the new backup was done and succeeded, I clicked the Icon-WPBackItUp link in the admin bar, it reload the backup list page and the icon returned to its clock icon and all is fine now.

    Initially, clicking the Admin-link/icon when I first saw the warning made no difference, I had to redo the backup entirely for it to resolve.

    Thanks for the update @mwarbinek. I will review how the flag is set for the next release.
