[resolved] Backup failed to initialise error (4 posts)

    When I tried to initiate my first backup, I get this error:

    The backup failed to initialise: 2: fopen(blah-blah-blah/plugins/wponlinebackup/tmp/full/backup.zip.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory.

    I don't have permissions completely figured out, could this be the problem? What should permissions be set to for your plugin to work?

    Thanks.

    Hi kskavish,

    Someone else had a similar problem here:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-online-backup-for-wordpress-online-email-backups-fail?replies=10

    They fixed it by changing permissions of the folder blah-blah-blah/plugins/wponlinebackup/tmp/ to 755

    Failing that, they tried 775, and then finally, 777 (which is quite unsecured but it was the only way they could get it work for some reason.)

    I'll be putting permissions checks into the next version increment of the plugin to help out with this! So it will appear on the dashboard.

    Hope this helps.

    Jason.

    3.1.3 Manual back up gives me this message:

    The backup failed to initialise: 2: fopen(/var/www/vhosts/bigbridge.org/httpdocs/100thousandpoetsforchange/wp-content/plugins/wponlinebackup/tmp/backup.data.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory.

    Automatic also fails... not sure what is going on Please help!

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Login to your FTP and create the "tmp" folder, it is probably missing. Inside that, create a "full" folder too.

    Both will need 0755 permissions, and if still failing, 0777.

    Regards,

    Jason.
