HTTP Loopback Connections Disabled
Using plugins like BackupBuddy from iThemes can sometimes throw an error that the HTTP Loopback Connections Disabled on the server. If you have a dedicated server and a good team who know what they are doing they can update the server to enable this but if you are stuck like me with a shared hosting then you won’t have much fun.
A workaround for this is to amend your WordPress wp-config.php file with the following code and this will allow you to get things working for this awesome backup plugin. This should be added right about the /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
I think the BackupBuddy is one of the best in the market and works 96% of the time. Well the 4% is left for those Multisite occasions as BackupBuddy does not YET support fully the WordPress multisite.
