Support » Plugin: UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup Plugin » Will this work on a multisite if I only want to backup one site?

    I see the warning after install that I have a multisite installation and I can upgrade to get extra features – but it goes on to say that without upgrading, UpdraftPlus allows every blog admin who can modify plugin settings to back up and restore…which sounds to me like it will still work.

    I don’t actually need full multisite backup (just one of them)…and I didn’t see anything specifically about that. So I attempted a backup, and it looked like it was working, but there’s nothing in my Dropbox folder so I’m guessing it didn’t work…though the log file appears to show batches of files being added to the zip.

    Total entities for the zip file: 29 directories, 21748 files, 804.9 Mb

    1745.588 (1) Table wp_term_relationships: finishing file (backup_2013-11-26-1559_Hudson_Chatter_99185b9beb01-db-table-wp_term_relationships.table.gz – 48 Kb)

    The backup apparently succeeded and is now complete (Nov 26 16:29:22)

    There were also notes about queueing and I’m guessing since it was a large backup it might not be done yet…but shouldn’t there be a note to that effect for impatient people like me? 🙂

    There’s nothing online, either. I’m trying it again because I had a thought – I started the backup BEFORE authenticating Dropbox. I thought it might still work since I did it VERY shortly after starting the backup, but maybe it needs to be complete before.

    Well, now nothing works. I tell it to do a backup, it says “Requesting start of backup…” then “Security check” then nothing happens.

    It does say “Backups, logs & restoring: 1 set(s) available” from 11/26 and I did receive an email last night saying

    UpdraftPlus: WordPress backup is complete.
    Backup contains: Files and database
    Latest status: The backup apparently succeeded and is now complete

    ETA: I closed the tab then reopened the Settings and now it’s creating file backup zips.

    And just like that, I have backups in Dropbox. I am guessing it was because I hadn’t fully authenticated dropbox before starting the backup process.

    However, if people are like me and don’t read the full settings page first, I can see the same thing happening. So it appears to be backing up but we don’t actually get the files anywhere. Are they in the ether somewhere or did they error out?

    Hi,

    If you don’t configure Dropbox or another storage location, then by default the backups are stored on the webserver itself (in wp-content/updraft).
