In this article I will discuss “How to fix UpdraftPlus failed backups”. Actually, there are many reasons to fail a backup using UpdraftPlus. In my case, I saw an issue using the UpdraftPlus plugin for my website backup.

I saw last 4 months this plugin stopped working to make backup. Also, I saw the plugin stop sending the backup files to my remote storage. Then I tried lots of ways to fix my failed backup issues.

That’s why I contacted with the plugin support team members, and they helped me to fix this issue.

Support Message:

Fail to make a Backup file

Issue Solution

You could ask your host to enable PHP Zip – it is much faster than the zip utility currently being used (PclZip).

You could also edit your .htaccess file which is found in the root of your WordPress site to better handle the Litespeed webserver. 

After taking a backup of the .htaccess file, open it and find the line that says

# BEGIN WordPress

and then add this code above it:

# BEGIN LiteSpeed noabort
<IfModule rewrite_module>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* - [E=noabort:1]
# END liteSpeed noabort

and then save it. These changes should hopefully allow the backup to complete successfully.
