๐Ÿ˜Ž Smart Backup Retries

SimpleBackups will automatically retry running your failed scheduled backups whenever possible to avoid missing backup runs resulting from temporary issues.

Some of the situations where we will retry taking your backups:

  • Too many connections error
  • Can't connect to MySQL server
  • Connection to your server timed out
  • MySQL query execution was interrupted
  • Lost connection to MySQL server during query
