    As you can see the WP-DBManager/system claims that the folder does not exsist, but it do exists. The folder should also be writable.

    Debugging WP-DBManager Using SSH

    1. In wp-dbmanager.php
    2. Find check_backup_files(); (around line 208)
    3. Add below it echo $command;
    4. Go to WP-Admin -> Database -> Backup
    5. Click Backup
    6. It should print some debugging line like the one stated in this thread previously.
    7. Copy that line than run it in SSH.
    8. If you need help on SSH contact your host or google for more info.
