Advanced Settings

The advanced settings are developed to help users customize the parameters of the backups to the limits of their web hosts.

One can increase the backup/migration/restoration success rate by adjusting these advanced settings.

1. Enable optimization mode for web hosting/ shared hosting

The option provides many optimizing algorithms for running a backup/migration task within a web hosting/ shared hosting environment, which will drastically increase the backup/migration success rate.

The option will take effect automatically, all you need to do is to check the option.

2. Compress files or only archive the files

Choose if you want the plugin to compress files when creating a backup:

Only archive without compressing – recommended on shared hosting accounts because of the lower CPU usage.

Compress and archive – uses more CPU resources and is therefore only recommended on a VPS or dedicated hosting environment.

Only archive files without compressing

3. Compress Files Every xxx MB

This option will split a backup task into many parts, therefore, is an ideal way to avoid hitting this limitation if you are running a big website.

Compress files every defined size in MB

4. Exclude the files which are larger than xxx MB

Use the option to exclude those relatively unnecessary large files from the backup, for example, videos and media files.
