Preguntas frecuentes

¿Cómo reestablezco una copia de seguridad?

Restoring backups made with BackWPup can be done multiple ways. Please take a look at our documentation here to learn more.

Mi tarea de copia de seguridad parece que no funciona según lo planeado.

BackWPup utiliza el propio sistema de tareas cron de WordPress (WP Cron) para ejecutar las tareas de copia de seguridad programadas. Para que WordPress sepa cuando ejecutar la tarea, tu «reloj interno» necesita ser ajustado regularmente. Eso ocurre cada vez que alguien(incluido tú) visita tu sitio.
Si ocurre que tu sitio no es visitado en un periodo de tiempo, el reloj interno de WordPress se retrasa. En ese caso requiere una tarea programada del lado del servidor que realice la petición regularmente a http://your-site.tld/wp-cron.php y le diga a WordPress que hora es.

Una forma simple de averiguar si WP Cron está funcionando como debe en tu sitio, es crear una entrada y establecer la fecha de publicación en algun momento posterior, por ejemplo 10 minutos después. Entonces, sales de tu sitio (esto es importante) y vuelve dentro de 11 minutos y verifica si tu entrada programada ha sido publicada. Si no ha sido publicada, eres el afortunado de tener un problema con tu WP Cron.

¡Eh! esto quiere decir: «ERROR: ¡no está definido correctamente el destino de la copia de seguridad!»

Eso significa que ha comenzado una tarea de copia de seguridad, pero BackWPup no sabe dónde guardar los archivos de la copia. Cancela por favor la tarea en curso y re-edita su configuración. Debería haber un pestaña «En: …» en la configuración de tu tarea de copia. ¿Has establecido correctamente un destino de la copia de seguridad?

Ha comenzado una tarea de copia de seguridad, pero parece que no está sucediendo nada, incluso cuando la reinicio manualmente.

Solución #1

  • Open BackWPup->Ajustes
  • Ir a la pestaña de informaciones.
  • Find Server self connect: in the left column.
  • Si dice algo similar a (401) Autorización requerida en la columna derecha, ve a la pestaña Red y establece el usuario y contraseña para la autentificación en la parte del servidor.
  • Prueba otra vez iniciando la tarea de copia de seguridad.

Solución #2

  • Open wp-config.php and find the line where it says if ( !defined('ABSPATH') ).
  • Somewhere before that line add this: define( 'ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true );

Solución #3

No es una solución exactamente, pero una forma de identificar el problema real: mira las observaciones en la parte superior del WP Cron

Obtengo este mensaje de error: `El test de respuesta HTTP tiene el error «Tiempo de conexión terminado»`

BackWPup performs a simple HTTP request to the server itself every time you click run now or whenever a backup job starts automatically. The HTTP response test message could mean:
* Your host does not allow loop back connections. (If you know what WP_ALTERNATE_CRON is, try it.)
* Your WordPress root directory or backup directory requires authentication. Set username and password in Settings->Network.
* The Server can’t resolve its own hostname.
* A plugin or theme is blocking the request.
* Other issues related to your individual server and/or WordPress configuration.

Obtengo un error fatal: `No puede crear el directorio: […]/wp-content/backwpup-[…]-logs en […]/wp-content/plugins/backwpup/inc/class-job.php …`

Please set CHMOD 775 on the /wp-content/ directory and refresh the BackWPup dashboard. If that doesn’t help, try CHMOD 777. You can revert it to 755 once BackWPup has created its folder.

Cuando edito una tarea la pestaña Archivos se queda cargada siempre.

Ve a Ajustes->General y desactiva «Mostrar el tamaño de las carpetas en la pestaña de archivos si la tarea es editada». El cálculo del tamaño de las carpetas puede llevar tiempo en sitios con muchas carpetas.

Generé una lista de mis plugins instalados, pero es dificil su lectura.

Intenta abrir el archivo de texto en un editor como Notepad++ (Windows) o TextMate (Mac) para observar los saltos de línea.

!Mi proveedor de hosting me ha notificado que BackWPup está causando una carga inaceptable del servidor¡

Ve a Ajustes->Tareas y prueba alguna opción diferente para «reducir la carga del servidor».

¿Puedo cancelar via FTP una copia de seguridad en curso?

Si. Ve a tu directorio temporal de BackWPup y localiza un archivo llamado backwpup-xyz-working.json donde “xyz” es una cadena aleatoria de números y caracteres. Elimina ese archivo para cancelar la tarea de copia de seguridad que se está ejecutando en este momento.

¿Puedo mover el directorio temporal a una ubicación diferente?

Si. Necesitas tener permisos de escritura en el archivo wp-config.php (habitualmente ubicado en el directorio raíz de tu instalación de WordPress).

  • Open wp-config.php and find the line where it says if ( !defined('ABSPATH') ).
  • Somewhere before that line add this: define( 'WP_TEMP_DIR', '/absolute/path/to/wp/your/temp-dir' );
  • Sustituye /absolute/path/to/wp/ con la ruta absoluta de tu instalación de WordPress y your/temp-dir con la ruta absoluta a tu nuevo directorio temporal.
  • Guardar el archivo.

¿Qué significan esos marcadores en los nombres de archivo?

  • %d = dos dígitos para el día del mes, con ceros a la izquierda
  • %j = día del mes, sin ceros a la izquierda
  • %m = día del mes, con ceros a la izquierda
  • %n = representación del mes (sin ceros a la izquierda)
  • %Y = cuatro dígitos representando el año
  • %y = dos dígitos representando el año
  • %a = antes del meridiano (am) y después del meridiano (pm) en minúsculas
  • %A = antes del meridiano (AM) y después del meridiano (PM) en mayúsculas
  • %B = Swatch Internet Time
  • %g = hora en formato 12 horas, sin ceros a la izquierda
  • %G = hora en formato 24 horas, sin ceros a la izquierda
  • 5h = hora en formato 12 horas, con ceros a la izquierda
  • %H = hora en formato 24 horas, con ceros a la izquierda
  • %i = dos dígitos representando los minutos
  • %s = dos dígitos representando los segundos

The free version doesn’t have restore options, I could handle that, however the fact that they further cripple it to really only support DropBox & FTP is a step way too far. If you want to save your backups locally and perhaps manually move them to the cloud then this does look like a good plug to test for that. Back to the «UpdraftPlus – Backup/Restore» plugin for me. The only reason I’m looking elsewhere is that the free version this plugin doesn’t let you schedule the backup times. I volunteer for a non-profit so I don’t want to pay for every little thing.

It’s a scam! Paying $70 for an extension, then $40 a day to keep it, is a big scam!!!I don’t even believe in what this company does and how they treat customers.What a shame !!!

Dangerous at the highest level. We used BackWPup to create and download a backup file (I have the file to prove it). One week later, the Logs and Backups in the plugin show empty, and apparently, the only way to restore from the downloaded backup file is to buy a Pro subscription. We made this backup before making major changes to the website, believing that it will be restorable, and now it is lost. Who TF needs a backup plugin that only creates (and, apparently, loses without any trace) backup files but does not have a restore option?

Unfortunately, the plugin activating routine not checking the server possibilities before activating, and try to work on unsupported PHP version, kills the site. Should be correct this routine
28 de marzo de 2023
The fact, that there is no easy restore option should be clearly stated on the plugin’s description page. The fact that it is only available only in the Pro version is, in my view, an ugly tactic to force non technical users to purchase it they need to restore something.
