[resolved] DB Backup Not Created (2 posts)

    Backups are not being created; neither saved on the site nor attached to the email notice. The email sends correctly; just no db backup attached. No error messages are displayed.

    I fixed it by making the /backups folder writable.

    The "Create database backup" button fails, both at the initial backup and on the backup tab, regardless of the folder permission.

    I enabled scheduled backups and send by email. The email was sent, but no backup attached. I made the /backups folder writable and retested. The email was sent with the db attached.

    I note that, when I enable send by email, any backups stored in /backups are deleted. This may be the expected behavior, but I am not sure that I like it.
