Issue with protocol directory when moving to another server (2 posts)

    Hey guys

    first of all thanks for the great plugin. It's really amazing!

    I discovered a small issue:
    When I move to another server, it messes with the protocol file directory.
    It seems like the directory is setup in plain text during install and after moving to another server the entry is not valid anymore

    For example my folder was:
    /var/www/clients/client4/web21/web/wp-content/backwpup-d7774-logs/

    After moving to another server (in this particular case it was only to another account)
    there is this error:
    - Protokolldateienordner '/var/www/clients/client4/web21/web/wp-content/backwpup-d7774-logs/' existiert nicht!
    - Protokolldateienordner '/var/www/clients/client4/web21/web/wp-content/backwpup-d7774-logs/' ist nicht beschreibbar!
    Its in German and just says that the directory does not exist and is not writeable

    So I manually had to find out the directory and type it in:
    /var/www/clients/client4/web23/web/wp-content/backwpup-d7774-logs/

    Suggestion:
    After this error occurs, can you implement a function which automatically tries to fetch the server directory like during the first installation?

    Pleace chage the folder in the settings. Leaf the folder empty in the setting and save. Will set it to default.
