Support » Plugin: XCloner Google Drive » Sending backup to GDrive

  • Resolved ibelyaev


    I’ve installed your xcloner and xcloner Google drive plugins, thank you for your work!
    xcloner is very comfortable in use and cool, but today i faced one problem – since setup my remote gdrive storage i can send backups just pressing “cloud” button in pages ‘manage backups’ or ‘generate backups’,
    but when my backups are scheduled and performing automatically, none of them are being sent to Gdrive remote storage. All automatic backup processes are stopped with the following error:

    [2017-04-13 15:30:43] xcloner_archive.INFO: Closing the backup archive with 2*512 zero bytes blocks. [] []
    [2017-04-13 15:30:43] xcloner_scheduler.INFO: File archive process FINISHED. ["CRON"] []
    [2017-04-13 15:30:43] xcloner_scheduler.INFO: Transferring backup to remote storage GDRIVE ["CRON"] []
    [2017-04-13 15:30:43] xcloner_remote_storage.INFO: Creating the Google Drive remote storage connection [""] []
    [2017-04-13 15:30:43] xcloner_remote_storage.ERROR: Could not initialize the Google Drive Class, please check that the xcloner-google-drive plugin is enabled... [] []
    [2017-04-13 15:30:43] xcloner_archive.INFO: Sending backup error notification to [] []

    of course, xcloner Gdrive plugin is enabled and system requirements are OK
    Could you help me with this problem?

    I’ve posted a small fix of a path issue i presume you are facing when running in cron mode, please download and install this dev version of xcloner-google-drive and let me know if you are still having issues

    Thanks a lot, Liuta, it works!

    One question – is Xcloner Gdrive compatible with Wp Super Cache ?
    I took a look into log file and last three lines was this:

    [2017-04-14 09:09:16] php_system.INFO: E_WARNING: array (   'type' => 2,   'message' => 'mkdir(): Permission denied',   'file' => '/home/555/',   'line' => 2232, ) [] []
    [2017-04-14 09:09:19] php_system.INFO: E_WARNING: array (   'type' => 2,   'message' => 'mkdir(): Permission denied',   'file' => '/home/555/',   'line' => 2232, ) [] []
    [2017-04-14 09:09:37] php_system.INFO: E_WARNING: array (   'type' => 2,   'message' => 'filemtime(): stat failed for /home/555/',   'file' => '/home/555/',   'line' => 2558, ) [] []

    Those are only warnings and you can forward them to the developer of that plugin, XCloner catches all errors from the WP backend, however the errors posted above do not influence the backup process.

    Thanks for your test, i will make a release today with the fix.

    can you help me? Im using your plugin, which is the right procedure to restore a backup, do i have to install wordpress and use the backup already done? please help

    Hi there, the process would be like this:

    1. install a fresh copy of WordPress with XCloner installed
    2. activate your Remote Storage option and point it to the same location where the backup is
    3. go to Manage Backups section and select “Change to Remote Storage” dropdown box and Select your Remote Storage option
    4. click the “Push Backup to Local Storage” button to transfer the backup to the local repository
    5. go to Restore Backups screen, click “Check Connection” and follow the on screen instructions

    Hope it helps. Ovidiu

    I did follow your instructions but, step 3 “change to remote storage” in the lists do not appear the backup im looking for ,but at google drive it is what can i do, thanks for your help

    Please check that you have configured the correct folder ID/ root path for your google drive settings. Otherwise, you can download the backup manually and upload it on your site backups folder so XCloner can access it
