    Hello Jess

    Trust you're doing well!

    Please increase site's PHP memory that is set to 40MB to 256MB and max_execution_time that is set to 30 to 150seconds.

    To do so, please add the following line in the wp-config.php file, above /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */:

    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '3000M');

    And add the following to php.ini:

    max_execution_time = 150

    If there is no php.ini file exists, please feel free to create it and place it in public_html folder. These are a minimum requirments for the Snapshot plugin to run. To verify that the changes are applied, please go to WPMU DEV > Support > System Information.

    I've checked local snapshot and small backup as a full site's backup are running on your site.

    The upload to Google Destination, however, showing the following error:

    Error: Could not send file Google_0814_Exception: Failed to start the resumable upload in ../path/.. Failed to start the resumable upload

    It looks like an API related issue. I've created a new Google Destination on your site connected to my account, and it was uploaded successfully. Please see a backup named "Snapshot – test". Feel free to remove this Google destination afterward.

    Please try recreating a new application on the Google API Console

    end and see if it is working:

    – Check if the Google Drive API is enabled

    – From Credentials > OAuth consent screen, makse sure your top-level domain is added

    – When creating Credentials, please make sure Application Type as selected as Web application.

    Let us know how it went!

    Kind regards,
