    Hi andyvb,

    Can you post the full event log?
    If you click Activity Log and find the failed backup and click View Events it gives some more information.

    Thanks,

    Jason.

    I've manually created folder tmp with 777 rights and it's ok.
    700 was not working...

    Hi andyvb,

    Glad to know you resolved the issue.
    It must be PHP is running as an anonymous user - we see that on some smaller hosts.
    This means 777 is specifically needed for PHP to access the folder.

    Jason.
