Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » Updraft not backing up

  • Resolved wherefoodtakesus


    I haven’t been able to get updraft to make a complete back up of my site. It gets to file 1 of 7 or 2 of 7 before it gets stuck. It’s at -1700 seconds until the next resumption. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Sounds like the scheduler in your WP install is broken. For guidance, see:

    I had my host look at it and they were able to back up my site but it backed up everything but the database. I was able to create a back up yesterday after my host “fixed it” but today I tried backing it up and I had the same problem again where it stops and doesn’t resume.

    1, 2, and 6 aren’t the problem, I’m not confident to try 5, and I’m unsure if 3 or 4 are the issue. Do you have any more advice on how I can fix this?

    Thank you!
