Can't make full backups with snapshot

..everytime i try to make a "full backup" with snapshot, i'm getting an error "500". Database only is working. Can you please have a look (maybe it's the server config) and give me a hint or fix it?
Regards Beni

    Hi Beni,

    Hope you are doing good today.

    I logged to your dashboard and I see that your settings on your server are pretty good.
    max_execution_time is set to 300
    memory_limit is set 256M, but you can try to increase that to 512M
    Here you can find an article how to increase that limit:

    When I try to make a snapshot on your site it stuck at media and plugins folders.

    Can you add this to your wp-config.php file:

    /* Snapshot Settings */
    define('SNAPSHOT_FILESET_CHUNK_SIZE', 10); //reduce the amount of files processed in 1 go which reduces the server resources required
    define('SNAPSHOT_FILESET_LARGE_FILE_SIZE', 104857600); // will skip files larger than 100Mb (reduce this if need be) skipped files are listed in the logs.
    define('SNAPSHOT_FORCE_ZIP_LIBRARY', 'pclzip'); // optional settings are pclzip or ziparchive
    /* End of Snapshot Settings */

    Those lines should be placed above the "/* That's all, stop editing! */" in your wp-config.php file.

    After that try run snapshot again.

    If error 500 will still apper add this one to your wp-config.php file:

    define('WP_DEBUG', true);
    define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
    define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false);

    The line should be placed above the "/* That's all, stop editing! */"

    and run snapshot again.

    Above code will generate in the /wp-content/ folder a debug.log file. Please attach it here or share on dropbox. Thanks to this file we will understand what is causing the error.

    Please answer if that helped.

    Kind Regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.
