  • Servers sometimes overloaded causing browsing sites hosted on them to take a very long time to load or time out.


aPlus.net

Issues

  • Problems reported with sites above 450mb (with zip compression on; off increases limit).


BlueHost

On the boards, a few people have complained about BackupBuddy timing out during backup. To resolve this, support recommends editing your php.ini file to change max execution time to 600.


Dreamhost

Issues

  • Extremely slow.
  • No cPanel (uses custom system)
  • No native command-line zip. BackupBuddy will enter the slower, less reliable compatibility mode.
  • Problems reported with sites above 22mb (with zip compression on; off increases limit) due to slow processing.
    • Can create a custom php.ini to extend PHP timeout to increase BackupBuddy run-time.

Resources

GoDaddy

Issues

  • Custom control panel. Some changes take up to hours to take effect.
  • Slow site load times on some servers.
  • Some servers overloaded not leaving processing power for backups.
  • System actively kills any PHP process working too hard or too long (ie backups).


HostGator

  • Fast. Command-line zip available for best BackupBuddy experience.
  • CPanel.
