Thanks for your immediate and helpful reply.
So the main issue here for me is the Zip Method.
- On the FAQ page of Backup Buddy it is said: 'We recommend PHP 5.2 with command line ZIP<span style="color: #0000ff"> or </span>the ZipArchive class for optimum speed and functionality.'
- And Serverbuddy rates the Zip Methods als follows - exec (best) > ziparchive > pclzip (worst)
Thanks and kind regards,
p.s.: In the meantime I managed to disable the Magic Quotes through adding php_value magic_quotes_gpc off to the .htaccess file
