Permission error
June 10, 2010

I'm trying to clone a site to a new server and get these errors:

Current directory is now: /httpdocs TAR error: Unable to create directory '/var/www/vhosts/'
TAR error: Unable to create path for /var/www/vhosts/
Unable to write to directory /var/www/vhosts/! Please check that this directory is writeable!

XCloner Restore Version 1.9.0

I've tried changing permission using two FTP programs but it will not let me.

I've deleted the archive_tmp file and created it manually with 777 permissions but it changes them and gives the same error.

Can you help?

Hi there! Make sure that safe_mode option is turned Off for your site config, then try again

Let me know if you have further issues! Regards, Ovidiu
