Why do they take so long?

Ok, so I'm backing up my site before I upgrade, and, my backup isn't even half done yet, and it's been close to 12 hours. That doesn't seem right. My site isn't that big, the calculator said it'd only be about a 56MB backup...so why's it taking so long?

How are you doing the backup?

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Through the site, full backup. It's been sitting at 24mb/56mb for the last 6 hours.

Looks like you may be running into resource issues with your host.

In any case, the developers recommend using the backup tools provided by your host (i.e. through cPanel). They are more efficient and more reliable.

Will have to look into that.
My hosting company has been having some small hiccups lately, will have to email them.

Thanks for the advice! :)

I'm beating my head against my keyboard. Didn't notice until just now, the 'help/advice' on the backup page says exactly what you said. Wish I had caught that 12 hours ago.

I don't trust PHP backup scripts particularly as I have had issues both with installed software (like ocPortal) and Installers (like Installatron) not restoring properly.

The best way if you have the possibilty to make a server backup, or ask your host to set a domain backup every night for you.
