    I am currently using a WP backup plugin, Backup Guard. Due to the size of my site, I can no longer use it because my PHP Max Execution time is set to 120, which cannot be changed unless I upgrade to a $200/month hosting plan, which I don’t want to do. The Backup Guard tech support has told me that my site will no longer back up due to this issue.

    Does your backup plugin rely on this same variable?

    Hi Donna,

    Thanks for your question about Total Upkeep backup plugin for WordPress.

    Max PHP execution time is a built in variable that’s required for any PHP application to function properly. If you’re backing up a larger site you will likely have the same issues with Total Upkeep because an error with Max Execution Time usually means that it is taking longer for a process to complete than your current PHP settings are allowing, and it is timing out because of it.

    If your hosting company has limitations on these settings I’m afraid it may not run Total Upkeep efficiently. We do have partner companies like InMotion Hosting and they have hosting plans from as low as $2.99 per month that could accommodate your task.

    I hope you find this helpful! Please reach back out to us if you have any questions.
