    Got it fixed...thanks!

    I am using the command line backup exclusively now.

    If the forumsbackup directory is world-readable and writable, this will work. Perhaps you should use the full path instead of a relative one.

    Also if you have access to the command line, you should use the more reliable backup option posted above.

    Steve,

    This is a Win2003Svr box...I checked permissions and they seem to be right.

    Bad thing is I had this problem before and was able to fix it.

    You need to chmod the admin cp directory to 777 for this to work, or specify the full path to a directoryy that is chmod'd to 777.

    Note: The only reliable method of backing up and restoring a database is with shell access via telnet orssh. Please see the instructions here:

    Backup:

    Restore:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/m...ce_ssh_restore

    This is because backing up with a PHP script like that in the Admin CP or phpMyAdmin can result in PHP timeouts errors and an incomplete backup file.

    Upgraded to 3.0.8--now backups from admincp don't work

    Running mysql dump from the command line works fine, but using backup.php from admincp results in the following error:

    Warning: fopen(./forumbackups/forumbackup-08-12-05-308-2.sql): failed to open stream: Permission denied in \admincp\backup.php on line 177
    I added the path "./forumbackups/" to the path in backup.php.

    Thjis happened once before and I can't remember how I fixed it, but I've checked permissions and nothing is off. As I said, I can use mysqldump to write a backup file into the same directory with no problems.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!
