Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » The backup is being aborted for a repeated failure to progress

  • Resolved gmex1292


    My backups were working fine until about 2 weeks ago. Now, I keep getting backup failures. I’ve made no changes.

    The last run was:

    5088.141 (11) UpdraftPlus WordPress backup plugin ( 1.16.6 WP: 5.0.3 PHP: 7.1.18 (litespeed, Linux 2.6.32-896.16.1.lve1.4.54.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed May 2 07:43:19 EDT 2018 x86_64) MySQL: 5.6.39-cll-lve WPLANG: en_US Server: Apache safe_mode: 0 max_execution_time: 900 memory_limit: 268435456 (used: 46.5M | 48M) multisite: N openssl: OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips  26 Jan 2017 mcrypt: Y LANG:  ZipArchive::addFile: N

    5088.239 (11) No email will/can be sent - the user has not configured an email address.
    5088.240 (11) The backup attempt has finished, apparently unsuccessfully

    I’ve tried over and over again and the same. I tried changing “split archives every” to 100MB. I am on Version 1.16.6 of the plugin and WordPress 5.0.3.

    Any recommendations?

    To help us work out the cause of your problem, can you please send us a copy of the backup log?
    This log can be found in the Existing Backups tab of the UpdraftPlus dashboard.
    If you cannot access the UpdraftPlus dashboard, then you can find the log file in the ‘wp-content/updraft’ directory via FTP or your hosts’ file manager.

    Best Wishes,

    Sure where can I send it?

    You can paste the logs here: and share the link here.


    Thanks for your help. I can’t explain it but it’s now working. I didn’t change anything. I’m curious, after making any config changes in the wordpress plugin, is there any caching that occurs? It seems that when I tried to run the backup manually, it would fail (haven’t tried it since) but when it ran on the schedule I set up it worked (and has been working for a few days now).


    I’ve been getting the same error on my website for the last couple of months. Can someone help on this thread or should I start a new one?


    For three days, I always get the same error as described above.
    I use the version: UpdraftPlus
    Who can give me a hint how to fix the error.
    Thank you!!
