backup issues, seems like it's only the remote backups affected

Both methods for remote backup I've setup are not working any more? The managed backup does not run at set interval and returns null_response when run manually, log file does not display anything either.

Snapshots are only working locally, I do have valid connection to my google drive folder and the connection is authorized, but the file never arrives although the snapshot did complete.

both stopped working on the 3rd, so strange?

    Hello Staq,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    Did you tried making a plugin/theme conflict test as described in our getting support manual or see the flowchart attached below.

    If that does not turn out to be a conflict then please reset the Google Drive connection and then check again.

    Also, the managed snapshot does not work for you either (Snapshot -> Managed Snapshots) ?

    Please enable support staff access so we could take a closer look. To grant access go to Dashboard -> WPMU DEV -> Support -> Support Access -> Grant Support Access or see this manual for more details regarding how to enable support staff access.

    Take care and have a nice day :slight_smile:

    Best Regards,

    Hey there Staq,

    Could you please try deleting your old Google Drive destination, then try creating a new one and re-authorize it? Please also make sure that you have enabled Drive API for the newly created project.

    Let us know how it goes!

    Thanks that sorted the snapshots to google drive.

    But the managed backups are still broken though, it's been stuck on Automatic backup currently running for days & the managed backups log states: [Cron][2017-04-10 17:31:47][Warning] Immediate hook misfired, kickstart backup processing

    Hello Staq,

    Glad we had the Google Drive issue resolved, we're getting to the bottom of this. :slight_smile:

    Please make sure you have no manual backups running and temporarily disable automated backups. Then, can you open your wp-config.php file via FTP and add the following above the /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ line

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
    // Enable WP_DEBUG mode
    define('WP_DEBUG', true);
    // Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file
    define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
    // Disable display of errors and warnings
    define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false);
    @ini_set('display_errors', 0);

    After you made those changes, try running a backup again (you can try with both manual and managed backups). There will be a log saved to a debug.log file inside the "/wp-content" folder. Please save the file as a .txt and attach it to your next post.
    If the file's larger than 5MB you might need to upload it somewhere like Dropbox and share the link here.

    Let me know how it goes!
