I'm getting the following error message when I try to backup:

Required sql backup directory D://administrator/backups is not writeable or does not exists!

 

I've created a folder (DBbackups) in my WordPress 2.9.1 install, in the wp-content folder. Path is -

D://Hosting/5386477/html/wp-content/DBbackup

 

Backup start path is - D://Hosting/5386477/html/

but it keeps disappearing when I change screens and go back to Config.

 

I've also created a folder (administrator) in my root folder, and another folder (backups) inside the administrator folder,

and tried using that for my path -

D://Hosting/5386477/html/administrator/backups/

but I still get error message -

Required sql backup directory D://administrator/backups is not writeable or does not exists!

Hi there! Could you post here a screenshot from your XCloner Config -> Info tab? Try reinstalling it first and leave the values unchanged.

Try also and replace the backup Start Path with

 

D:/Hosting/5386477/html/

 

notice the double slash is replace with a simple slash

 

Tell us also what operating system version are you using, as for the server, are you running IIS or something else?

The info tab showed error for the path, so I corrected that and got the plugin to work.

But the exec() functionsupport is shown as Disabled, even though both 'Active' checkboxes on the General Tab are not checked.

How can exec() functionsupport be enabled?

How do you setup an automated backup in Wordpress?

In order to use exec, you need to check if it's allowed in your php.ini. Also, once you do that, you need to adjust the tar and mysqldump paths so they point to their .exe filenames on the server.

I would advise however you leave the Active checkboxes unchecked, XCloner will still work

 

As for automated backups, please check the XCloner Manual, we have there detailed the cronjob setup, also check the XCloner backend->Cron menu link
