Error 522 on Snapshot manual backup, even after PHP settings value changes...

I've been using Updraftplus as well as Snapshot Pro for backups as I'm getting a Multisite installation ready and I want to be able to revert back as I enable/disable plugins.

Updraftplus backups have been going smoothly. Snapshot started failing just now.
Original PHP settings on my A2Hosting servers were:
max_execution_time = 300
default_socket_timeout = 60
and it failed. I got the Aw Shucks error 522 message (Cloudflare timeout).

I've updated the .htaccess file to
max_execution_time = 600
default_socket_timeout = 600
and checked via wp-serverinfo to make sure those settings are used
and the manual backups still fail.

I'd rather keep my php settings as they were as UpdraftPlus was running nicely. Could you find out what the problem is, as well as find a way that Snapshot Pro works with limited settings, similar to UpdraftPlus? I'd rather use your services as they're all part of the package.

Here's the log file contents:
