    Hello there,

    BackupWordpress won’t create any backups manually with no errors. Only when I chose to get backup from Database I receive following error:

    shell_exec() has been disabled for security reasons, /…/httpd.www/wp-content/plugins/backupwordpress/classes/class-backup.php, 1860

    In the meantime I made couple of backups on my other websites with no issues!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m kinda confused right now. Any clues?

    Many thanks,

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/backupwordpress/

    Same here… if I do a backup (both database and files) I get the same error:

    shell_exec() has been disabled for security reasons, /home/…/wp-content/plugins/backupwordpress/classes/class-backup.php, 1860

    The backup is nevertheless being created… but still – what consequences does this error message have?

    I am having this same error message popup. Looking forward to a response soon. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, It hasn’t resolved yet even in ver. 3.2.2

    Problem still exists! 3.4.2

    if you have the “shell_exec” error come up – it’s because your host has disabled that function on your server (usually shared hosting). Our plugin has a fallback method in place if that happens, but it doesn’t work all the time.

    If you are having an issue with this please open a new ticket so we can confirm why your backup isn’t completing – it might be due to another issue.

    Thanks,
    Kat
