Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Still Dropping S3 Secret Key data after 3.3.7 update

  • Resolved rogereab

    Unfortunately even after the 3.3.7 update the same issue occurs in that the S3 key data after entering and saving again still reverts to my WordPress login and thus the backup although successful, fails to upload to Amazon S3. Have cleared all caches on local browsers and servers. Happens on all my WordPress sites running on Siteground hosting.

    Hi,

    you could try to temporarily enable WordPress debugging on one of the sites as described here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Debugging_in_WordPress, so add to wp-config.php

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

    save the S3 credentials again and check if there is an output in the file wp-content/debug.log.

    Kind regards
    Christina

    Hello Christina,

    Done as requested and there were several repeats of the following with PHP 7.1.2 running. Some details crossed out for security!

    HOWEVER I’ve now found that this only seems to happen in Safari on my iMac with latest OS. Just tried Chrome and it appears to work correctly in that the details of the S3 bucket appears and can be selected in the dropdown. I can apparently now manually run a backup and it uploads to Amazon S3 OK.

    Is it me or just Safari being a real pain?

    Thanks for your help by the way!

    Hi Roger,

    thanks to your report we found an incompatibility with PHP 7.1, but according to my current findings, but sot sure how the issue could be there only for Safari…

    By the way, we will release the fix in next release (no date available yet), but if you want you could subscribe as beta tester and you could test the fix earlier.
