Backup Buddy - HTTP loopbacks and cron jobs

  • Answered

Ive had problems with another web host in the past and wanted to check before I buy one of your packages. Do you allow HTTP loopbacks needed to run simulated cron jobs. I use WP and my preferred back up plug in is Backup Buddy that doesn't work well with some hosts.


Hello Ax,

Thank you for your question on BackupBuddy and http loopbacks. As long as the plugin is not using 'localhost' and uses the domain name and IP address to set up the loopback for the crons, it will work fine. Apache virtualhosts would recognize 'localhost' in this instance as which would not work well for your setup.

Kindest Regards,
