Scheduled Backup not running

    Some of my blogs scheduled backups are not happening. I set a schedule to back them up once a week but some are showing the message “backup is about to start at any moment..” this message stays but a backup never happens. I can preform manual backups ok. I’m running the latest version of WordPress & online backup.

    Hi purplebabyhippo,

    When this happens you’ll probably not be able to “schedule” posts in WordPress either.

    I’ve posted a really long (maybe too long) explanation on this issue in the following topic, along with a few possible resolutions:

    Best resolution is usually to enable WP_ALTERNATE_CRON – if you skip past my really long post you’ll see me summarise it. This is the best fix for the issue and the first thing to try.

    Regards,

    Jason
