The following are Zip settings options located on the Advanced & Troubleshooting Settings tab.


Enable zip compression

Default: enabled] - Uncheck for large sites causing backups to not complete. ZIP compression decreases file sizes of stored backups. If you are encountering timeouts due to the script running too long, disabling compression may allow the process to complete faster.

Zip method strategy

Default: Best Only] - Select Force Compatibility if absolutely necessary. Normally use Best Available but if the server is unreliable in this mode can try All Available or Force Compatibility

Alternative zip system (BETA)

[Default: Disabled] Check if directed by support.

Disable zip method caching

[Default: Disabled] Check if directed by support to always log zip detection. Use if directed by support. Bypasses caching available zip methods so they are always displayed in logs. When unchecked BackupBuddy will cache command line zip testing for a few minutes so it does not run too often. This means that your backup status log may not always show the test results unless you disable caching.

Ignore zip archive warnings

[Default: Disabled] Check to ignore non-fatal errors when zipping files. When enabled BackupBuddy will ignore non-fatal warnings encountered during the backup process such as inability to read or access a file, symlink problems, etc. These non-fatal warnings will still be logged.

Ignore/do-not-follow symbolic links

[Default: Enabled] Check to ignore/not-follow symbolic links when zipping files. When enabled, BackupBuddy will ignore/not-follow symbolic links encountered during the backup process.
