Snapshot Pro Backup Not Working.

The snapshot plugin won't let me backup. All is setup correctly but when I initiate the snapshot it gives an error after some time.


It is for both regular and managed backup. All pre-requirements shows green check marks.

    Hello Troy,

    The "405" error translates to "Method not allowed", which means that one of the HTTP connection (query) methods is not accepted by the server. Usually it is GET or POST method used in some specific content, in that case it would most likely be a call - or too many subsequent calls - to an admin-ajax.php script (AJAX calls).

    That can be caused by a number of reasons but most often is related to the server configuration.
    Would it be possible you could contact your hosting provider and ask about that specific error?

    Also could you please send in the following via our secure contact form so we can give closer look whats going on there?

    - Mark to my attention, the subject line should contain only: ATTN: Kasia Swiderska
    - Do not include anything else in the subject line, doing so may delay our response due to how email filtering works.
    - Link back to this thread
    - Include FTP log-in details (hostname, username & password)
    - Include any relevant URLs for your site

    IMPORTANT: Please make sure you select "I have a different question" for your topic, so it doesn't go back to the forums - this and the subject line ensure that it gets assigned to me.

    Please confirm here that you send those credentials

    kind regards,
