WordPress EZ Backup
[resolved] Receiving Permission Denied Error (4 posts)

    I just installed version 7.0.6 and receive the following error when attempting a backup. All of my settings are correct.

    /home/auctgrow/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-ez-backup/functions/routine/backup.sh: line 16: /home/auction/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-ez-backup/functions/routine/functions.sh: Permission denied

    Also, I purchased your cron addon, but I can only enable it for a single site. How do I manually activate it for my other sites?

    Thanks in advance,

    Strange its saying the script is being denied access to the functions.sh file.

    Please make sure that file is under proper owner and permissions. Permissions should be set to 640 - Owner and Group access only not public access.

    Addons are only able to be activated per site they are purchased. Addons are licensed to single sites.

    You can set permissions to 700 if you want to lock the file down even further.

    Whatever you do just make sure all files you adjust permission on are not view-able by the public. Some files contain information about your Database and WP Install.
