[resolved] Can't backup my db. (5 posts)

    I get the message saying: "The backup couldn't save. Please check perm on the backup folder..........."

    I don't know why I get this. Since the plugin is making this folder automaticly, and everything appears to be right. May the reason be that I am using 3.* as the MySQL database version? I am using Media Temple.

    So what are the permissions on that folder?

    I fixed it. It was apache that had the permission to the folder, not the user :P

    Therefore the problem is solved :D Thanks anyways...

    I've got the same same problem with the backup.
    The rights are 777 for the backup directory.
    But it seems that the plugin can't write to the folder. why?
    The server is an hosted server so i can't change the owner of the directory.

    When i create manualy the file that the plugin wants to write and change the permissions of the file to 777 the backup process completed.
