    all of a sudden, WP Clone won't let me create a backup, giving me the following error message:

    Error Message : Unable to create the temporary backup directory,please make sure that PHP has permission to write into the .... Directory.

    I've seen someone else had this problem in the forum link below, is there a solution to this?

    Check permissions and file ownership of the directory:


    I found that on my system, the wp-clone installation was created with the owner "www" - while most files are owned by my account name-- I solved this by changing permissions to 775 (the default setting appears to be 755). I needed to have root access via shell to do this.

    However, you should be able to see the ownership and permissions in most FTP programs, even if you aren't able to change it on your own.
