    someone in the SlickStack Discord was asking about this question and he discovered that MU plugins installed by SlickStack were causing the fatal error, after he tried to restore the backup and skipped the MU plugins the fatal error disappeared

    SlickStack supports Updraft 100%, actually it’s recommended:

    This is not really a SlickStack issue, it’s a general WordPress concern. Anytime you backup your WordPress site to remote services, you shouldn’t include the MU plugins, those are usually meant for the hosting environment only and can be skipped

    You can probably also skip the wp-config.php in your backups too, at least for SlickStack and other DevOps tools that generate that file for you automatically.

    all I know is it’s not Updraft’s fault 😬

    Ideally you should only backup your database and these folders:

    – /wp-content/plugins/
    – /wp-content/themes/
    – /wp-content/uploads/

    That would be ideal. But too many WP products are creating folders all over the place these days which has become a mess.
