    Where are you seeing this? The message indicates a PHP log notice during a background backup, but that wouldn’t cause a front-end website crash. Can you give any more information?


    Sometimes the Backup works. But sometimes the complete Page crashes, when Backup is active.
    Only after deleting updraft, the Page works again.

    It sounds probably that your web hosting company does not allocate you sufficient resources to perform a backup, and that if you try one, they throttle everything else. There are a few things you can try to help mitigate that; see here – – though, ultimately, if that’s what’s happening, then it can be a bit of a losing battle to fight if the web hosting company doesn’t want you to take backups.
