    I am using WordPress v 2.2.1
    I would like to upgrade WordPress to v 2.3.2
    To do so, it is suggested that I should backup my database.
    I have installed and activated WordPress Database Backup v 2.1.5
    No matter whether I try do backup to my computer or to my host, I get error

    WARNING: Your backup directory is NOT writable! We can not create the backup directory.

    I have created a directory on my home computer called

    My server shows a directory /public_html/wordpress/ with rwe permissions open to the whole world.

    What more can I do? How can I set up my computer or my host to be able to back up my database?

    Any help would be much appreciated.
