    I was able to back up the long way but when I enabled the zip extension I got this message:

    23:32:51 : A fatal error occured: could not open archive ('/var/www/vhosts/evelinejasper.co.nz/httpdocs/wp-content/backups/eveline-jasper-backup-2012-11-06-1.zip').

    I'm not a techie so a lay explaination would help.
    Thanks

    Gday mate,

    This could be due to a permission issue on the 'wp-content/backups' directory. The plugin needs to be able to write to this directory in order to create the zip archive.

    A quick google search for changing permissions with you host will point you in the right direction.

    Cheers,
    Mikey
