Backupify with 1&1
Backupify is a new online service that backs up your online services and is free to sign up until January 31st 2010. They provide backup services built on Amazon’s Web Services and supports a range of services including WordPress, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs and many more. Since you can never have too many backups and free is the magic price I signed up.
I was mostly interested in backing up WordPress since I have this site and art.ebabble.net. It seemed simple enough: add a plug-in and validate the account. I did that but received the same errors each day in the Backupify History page, a nice idea that shows what happened with your account. Here’s my error:
Perhaps too low php memory limit on https://ebabble.net for backup all files. We recommend 64M and more. Also install last version wp-backupify plugin and reregister
No comment on the grammar and punctuation. The plug-in version I installed from Backupify was 1.8 but they now offered a 1.0.3 version. Installed that but still received the low memory error. A little searching showed you can try to increase your PHP memory by creating a php.ini file with one line:
memory_limit = 64M
Unfortunately I had the same issue so I poked around the 1&1 website andthat they set a limit of 20 MB for PHP so it looks like I’m out of luck for now.
