In this section of the guide to the BackupBuddy plugin, we will take a look at the Other area of Settings where you can view and manage the Core Log file.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) From the left-hand sidebar of the Dashboard, navigate to BackupBuddy -> Settings -> Other.


Below is an overview of the options available:

A. Core Log The Core Log file contains items related to the core of BackupBuddy. It does NOT include backup logs which are available from the Backups page when Full Logging is enabled.

By default only errors are logged. Full Logging can be enabled on the Advanced Settings tab.

Click the Clear Log button to clear the Core Log file.

B. Version History This area displays the Version History of BackupBuddy.
C. Other In this area you can:

  • Click the Cleanup Temporary Files Now button to remove Temporary Files. Temporary files are normally automatically cleaned up on a regularly scheduled basis.
  • Click the Reset Dismissed Alerts button to clear any alerts. The number of alerts is displayed to the right of the button.


The next step of the guide will focus on How to Configure the BackupBuddy Licensing Settings.
