Very handy stuff (9 posts)

    Here this thing works almost perfect.
    Using it on a bunch of sites after trying some other.
    Just a few little things like telling me that my free disk space is 0 MB while it isn't. And maybe the settings could be somewhat clearer.
    But all together nice stuff. :-)

    Hi,

    Thanks!

    UpdraftPlus just passes on the free disk space reported by PHP on the webserver. So, if it's wrong, then you should check that with your web hosting company.

    Best wishes,
    David

    Well that's kinda funny because in this case it's Dropbox and in their admin panel I find always the right amount of space mentioned. Hmm. No big deal actually.
    Thanks.

    Hi Pieter,

    The local webserver disk space and the Dropbox account quota are two separate things.

    Best wishes,
    David

    In the log file it says:
    Free space on disk containing Updraft's temporary directory: 0 Mb
    [Warning] Your free disk space is very low - only 0 Mb remain
    So my question: is this on Dropbox? That's where I upload the backups.
    I got that on every installation.

    No, it's your webserver. The zips have to be put together there before they can be uploaded to Dropbox (and then remove from the webserver).

    Ok, I see. But these backups are saved to my webserver indeed. So while it 'thinks' there is no space, it is using the space every time, adding 500KB.

    Hi Pieter,

    Dropbox (and the other storage providers) don't have a way to create a zip file all in one go. It is necessary to create the zip file locally, and then send it to the cloud storage.

    Concerning the wrong free space report, UpdraftPlus just passes on the free disk space reported by PHP on the webserver. So, if it's wrong, then you should check that with your web hosting company.

    Ok thanks. Since this doesn't seem to be a problem on all other accounts, I'll let this one rest for now.
