What do I need to get BackWPup running smoothly?

To have BackWPup running smoothly on your website, it should meet the following requirements:

  1. At least WordPress 3.8
  2. At least PHP 5.2.7.
  3. To get the full functionality of this plugin:
    • PHP 5.3.3 with mysqli, 
    • FTP, 
    • gz, 
    • bz2, 
    • ZipArchive and 
    • curl

Even if your website doesn't offer the features listed under 3., BackWPup can be used. In this case the features which use these requirements will be not available.
