Most of the people who have had difficulty running wp Time Machine were most likely missing cURL or didn’t have the system command or shell_exec command enabled (by their hosting provider). I should mention this assumes you are on a site running PHP5, too. Despite checks and logging validation of those checks: logging!!; a lot of people also ran into snags that I suspect might be alleviated by just using a framework for archive generation instead of binaries. Enter PEAR: . Since the switch from the current plugin’s architecture to PEAR is fairly significant; I’m inviting users to test a branch in subversion.
Instructions follow …. feel free to post comments here or on the forum (and if you do please include a link to your wp Time Machine log — it’s benign but very helpful).
If you have subversion installed on your host try this…
$ rm -rf wp-time-machine
Next install this test version:
$ svn co http://svn.wp-plugins.org/wp-time-machine/branches/pear-test ./wp-time-machine
If you don’t have subversion you can download & install this manually to
And if you need to find an old version go here:
Again please post a link to the log (there’s a link to the log at the top of the plugin interface).
