Some servers (especially free hosts) do not allow uploading files larger than XMB (4 MB usually). Backup copies made with XCloner -> Can be created on multiple files? Can you create files of a certain size?

I think this is important because many people (including me) tried servers free and we can not create backups XCloner.!

 

My opinion: To use a paid server must first test the free server and view its features.

Gracias.

Hi there! To create backups under 4 MB you could try and generate multiple backups by excluding different folders from your site so the size is under 4MB. Another solution would be to backup the database and files separately, the most valuable part of a website might be the database where changes are done more frequently and so the backup needs to be created more often with that part.

 

We do not have a backup split feature at this point implemented in XCloner, but if more users ask it, we will consider working on one.

I'm using 3.0.7. Becasue my server won't allow me to upload any file bigger than 200mb i've split the backup into 3 chunks. I've uploaded the 3 files to my new server along with the xcloner.php and tar.php files.

Do i need to combine the 3 backup files or will the program recognise that they are all part of the same backup and restore the backup to the new site.

regards Paul.

To restore them, you simply need to restore each backup separatelly, only at the last backup continue with the mysql import…

Hi Ovidiu,

 

Many thanks for this excellent piece of software. I just found that there is no way to split files when the backup is done via a cronjob, and would like to suggest it as a nice feature to have.

Best regards
