BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin
Error with Backup folder (2 posts)

    I have WP 3.4.2 and BackWPUp 3.0.6

    I get an error when trying to backup to dropbox:

    Backups folder /wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/backwpup-1775d-backups/ does not exist and cannot be created. Please create it and set proper write permissions.

    1) Shouldn't that path be something like "/home/username/public_html/wp-content/....."?
    2) Why can't I set a default backup folder anywhere?
    3) Why do I need to set a backup folder when I don't want to backup to a folder in the first place?
    4) Why isn't this error shown beforehand after installation or at "Settings->Information"?

    The same error appears with the Temp folder, but can be circumvented by defining WP_TEMP_DIR in wp-config.php.

    Sorry had a typo. I use WP 3.5.1 and BackWPUp 3.0.6 = both the newest.
