Out of memory in settings page #63
First off, this is a great plugin. And I really want it to work for my website. Alas, after a couple months of assuming that the backups were happening, I discovered that they had begun to silently fail. I suppose that's what I get for not paying for premium extensions.
I can't seem to get the backups to complete, and I can't get the settings page to completely load either. On the settings page, the Excluded Files and Directories checklist gets a PHP Fatal Error: Out of memory just after listing the wp-admin folder. The backups start just fine, but never report as having finished, and the dropbox folder shows nothing being updated (the backups worked a few months ago, so the original backup files did make it to dropbox).
Here's the Out of memory error (replaced the website location with XXX):
Here's a screenshot:
I suspect that the issue may be caused when wpb2d runs into some large (~30mb) unzipped SQL backup files in a subfolder of the wp-content folder, created by another backup plugin. But because I can't exclude that backups folder, I don't know for sure. This theory would also work with the fact that backups used to work, but as the website grew in size the SQL files got larger.
