Hi, I hope you can help me? I am looking to purchase BackupBuddy but need to know if it will work on my Server before I buy it. web site is: www.equilibrauk.com and it is running PHP 5.2.4-99. MySql version: 5.0.77 and being a shared hosting platform the PHP 'Memory' is only 64M. Though if it is backing up to say Dropbox would this still be a problem? I just need to know this software/plugin will work on my Server before purchase. Many thanks for all or any of your help - Steve

Hi Steve,

PHP 5.2+, WordPress 3.2+ (3.3+ recommended), MySQL 5.015 (5.1+ recommended) are the minimum specifications.

The 64MB PHP memory is a bit low, 128MB or even 256MB would be better (naturally the higher the better). Max PHP runtime (max_execution_time) being high is good too.

Really it will always come done to server's configurations compared to how big the site is. Bigger the site the less restrictive the server configurations it would need though usually as long as the site isn't really big not too much of an issue (and assuming host isn't being extra restrictive with server's configurations).

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages.
