Support » Plugins » WordPress Backup to DropBox not executing

  • I installed the plugin (v1.4.4) and programmed it to start backing up at 15:00. The hour came and went, and nothing happened. The following morning, I saw the message below in plugin’s backup log.

    08:39:46: Your time limit is 120 seconds and your memory limit is 200M
    08:39:46: Backup started on Wednesday February 20, 2013.

    I don’t expect the backup process to take that long (but perhaps I’m wrong). Nearly 2 hours after the log post, nothing has appeared in my DropBox in the Apps/wpb2d folder.

    My host is running PHP v5.3.17. URL: WP theme(parent/child): Twenty Twelve (parent) with the Twenty Plus Pro (child) theme.

    There’s something confusing about the time selection on this plugin. Does is refer to local or universal time (Greenwich time)?

    Today, at a few minutes before the hour, I reset the backup to take place on the immediate hour. Nothing happened.

    What can I do on my end to fix the backup start? Why am I not seeing a complete backup report in the log?

    OK, the backup finally ran (40 minutes after the hour), and files were loaded into DB. I’m getting used to the quirks of this plugin.

    Received the following message on the backup log: hr:min:sec Approximately unknown % complete.

    How do I know if all my core and plugin files were backed up in that 120 second span?
