Error alert when attempting to backup, nothing created

  • Hello,

    I’m running a 2.0 clean install and I’ve activated the backup utility in WP.

    Each time I try and create a backup (using the option of saving the file to my PC), I get the alert message “The backup file could not be saved. Please check the permissions for writing to your backup directory and try again.”

    When I look closer, I see that it’s trying to create a backup directory in “www.sarahanne.co.uk/wp-content” called “backup-0661d”. Via FTP, I am unable to change the permissions of this folder, or even see what’s inside, although can delete it.

    Anyone got any advice on how to resolve this? I’m getting worried – I’ve added lots of historical posts (from greymatter – another story) and am getting nervous about not having a backup 😉

    Sarah.
