Service startup - fail without internet connection

Hi all, recently I reinstalled urbackaup on a new server, now is running ver 2.3.8
But service hangs on starting beacuse it can’t download something from internet (We use a proxy with authentication). With proxy enabled service starts correctly.
Previous version didn’t get this problem.

Error on starting attached:urbackup.log (1.9 KB)

Anyone know how to disable this download or advice?

Sorry, shouldn’t crash in this case obviously (bug).


  1. Set the http_proxy variable for the service (or system)
  2. Disable Download client from update server in the server settings
