Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Updating from 3.0.6 to 3.0.8 gives HTTP-error 500 (Internal Server Error)

  • Resolved simonwimell


    I’ve just updated BackWPup to 3.0.8, but then I get HTTP-error 500 (Internal Server Error) when going to the BackWPup admin page. It’s a multisite installation if it makes any difference. Deleting the plugin files and restoring the ones from a backup (3.0.6) makes it work again.

    Any suggestions?

    The change is that wp-cron.php will used for start jobs instead of a front end call.

    Did you have any restrictions for wp-cron ?

    Not that I’m aware of.

    Trying to access other BackWPup pages (like logs) returns a WordPress message of permissions issue. I’m using User Role Editor, so I suppose it could be a capability issue?

    It seems to still keep backing up fine.

    The backup job not depends on permissions that is why the backup works.

    I’m using “User Role Editor” ( and all BackWPup capabilities are checked.
