  • Backup Problem

    I installed 1 1/2 weeks ago and have been playing a testing and configuring. I did a backup days ago and it seemed fine. Today was my first day of real operation with real registered members. I just did a backup from the ADMIN CP

    I got this followed by hundreds of lines of text obviously too much to paste here. Whats wrong ??

      Looks like vBulletin didnt have permission to write to that folder.

      The folder your going to backup to, if your writing it to the file system, MUST be fully writteable, IE chmodded to 777

        Would it switch back and forth ? 4 days ago I wrote to it.

            I've passed the error message on to my server guy. He's looking at it.
            Assuming it is a write permission thats been altered, it isn't the first time
            I've about had it with this server company.

            There is no way I can alter permissions correct ?

              Login with your standard ftp program, right click on that folder and select chmod from the drop down (most GUI FTP programs have somthing like this)

              You should be able to rechmod the folder if it did get changed for some reason
