I was about to update to the new version of wp (3.3.2) and so decided to upload backWPup wp plugin in order to back up my site. However when I try and run the back up it displays the following message:
2012/04/27 14:00.56: [WARNING] File or folder "/home6/centref9/public_html/esrc/wp-content/themes/twentyten/academica/scripts/timthumb.php.BACKUP" is not readable!
I have a few sites that use the academica theme and both, on performing the backup task, come up with similar problems with the timthumb script used by academica. So...
1) Does anyone actually know why this is happening/what the error message means
2) Do I really need timthumb? Or can I delete it to stop this from happening?
