Little annoying when your sales team directs me here when I'm asking a presale question. Then when I try to register to post so that I'll be notified of a response, I get a notice saying registration is disabled.

Anyway, here's my question...

I ran across phpMyAdmin (the import database feature) and it stated that you cannot upload a database bigger than 100mb.

In regards to Backup buddy, does this same limitation apply? If they don't, is there any such limitation on when a database is too big to backup and import or repair?

I'm thinking about purchasing your latest version of backup buddy but need to know if there are any issues in this area.

I'm afraid that my database will become too big that even backup buddy won't be able to load the database back online if my site gets hacked or if I have issues in the future. I use WooCommerce so the database is constantly growing in size. Currently, it's at almost 70mb and growing.

If this issue doesn't even exist with backup buddy, how is it that you load in the database without the issues of the 100mb limitation set by phpMyAdmin?

Thank you.

Hi Jeff,

BackupBuddy doesn't have any specific size limits on the backup, files, or database. And I haven't heard of a 100MB limit affecting things with the database. The only "limits" a person will really hit is the limits of the host's servers. If the host's server has a low max PHP runtime (max_execution_time) then naturally it will be harder for the server to build the zip file of a backup in time before timing out, for example.

I use backupbuddy many times and it always works great! But now I have made a backup from a site with a few subdomains in it too. I can't import the backup to a new domain. I'm sure it's because some subfolders are in the backup, but WHY doesn't it work. I thought the backup file might me too big, but as I can read in the above answer thats not it. I also can't open the zip file and manually add the backup files without the subfolders to the new domain. The old domain is closed, so this is the only backup I have.Does anybody have experience with this issue?
