[resolved] WordPress Backup to Dropbox never complete the zip backup. (6 posts)

    Hi all!

    I have purchased the WordPress Backup to Dropbox zip backup plug-in few months ago. After I purchased, it backup my entire site to Dropbox (as a zip). But since a few months ago (with WordPress 3.5.1 and 3.5.2), this plug-in never completes the backup. All the scheduled backup only shows following log.

    00:30:11: Your time limit is 600 seconds and your memory limit is 128M
    00:30:11: Backup started on Monday July 8, 2013.

    If I wait for a 6 hours, nothing backup, it only shows above log.

    If I manually run the backup, it goes to 11% and never complete. Is it my server (VPS) issue?

    I think it's not an issue with the Cron, because if I schedule posts, they published without any issue. Also I added following code to my htacess file.

    <Files "wp-cron.php">
    Allow from All
    Satisfy Any

    Moreover I have disabled all other plug-ins and test WPB2D, but not give a positive result.

    I would contact your VPS provider to see if this is an issue with all the RAM being used or an issue their end.

    Then please consider contacting the author on his stie.


    Scroll down and you'll see the contact info. The plugion author is not supposed to use these free support forums to handle commercial support.

    I can't see any huge resources usage while WPB2D start its jobs. RAM and CPU usage normal.

    @Jan Dembowski
    Thanks Jan. I already submitted a ticket. Hope he will contact me back.

    Still Michel not replied to my request. So sad, even if I pay for zip backup extension and premium support. :(

    Hay guys,

    Thanks for that Jan! You are correct, these forums should only be used for issues that I can answer that will help all users of WordPress and WPB2D.

    I am in the process of improving process! :-)

    @Bluemad - I have been on vacation for few weeks, hence the lack of reply. :-) You should have received a response to your ticket today. If not, please shoot me another email.
