Hello Ovidiu. Actually, I was already quite certain that the user name was not being hard-coded, even before I wrote the previous message, because when this problem first began to occur some time ago, I did in fact check the cloner.config.php file, and I could see that my user name was in fact being stored properly there. However, I just wanted for you to verify that this is so.
So the question then is why am I having this problem?
More specifically, here is what is happening:
After installing XCloner for the first time, as you know, it informs the user that the password must be changed.
So, I changed the user name and password and saved the changes, and then I proceeded to do a manual backup. This was before I figured out how to perform automatic backups using OSX's cron tab along with the Cronnix app.
The problem is that each time that I tried to log into XCloner in the following days in order to perform another manual backup, it would inform me that the user name and password were wrong, which I knew that they weren't wrong. In fact, as I said, I would physically open the cloner.config.php file in order to verify that the user name was correct.
The only way that I could get around this problem was by keeping a virgin copy of the cloner.config.php file handy. Each day, before using XCloner, I would simply replace the cloner.config.php file with a virgin copy of the file. Then, I would log in with the default user name and password, change the user name and password, and then conduct the manual backup.
Eventually, I discovered that if I just use my own password, but leave the user name at its default value, I could log in without having to replace the cloner.config.php file first.
So that is why I asked you if the user name was hard-coded, even though I really didn't think that it was.
Now that everything is automated via a cron tab, it is not a problem for me, but I assume that the problem still exists if I try to log in.
So the main question is: Why isn't XCloner recognizing my user name, even though it is clearly being stored in the cloner.config.php file?
That, my friend, is the question.
