Hi,

I am trying to implement the cron job configuration. I have read all of the posts concerning this subject in your forum. I seem to have a permission problem.

I am using your standalone 3.4 version. I created the aws S3 account. I have verified permissions.

I have activated the Amazon S3 Storage option.

I have tried with and without the SSL option.

I have tried with and without a bucket and I have created several bucket names to make sure.

The backups are being created locally without any problem on a regular apache shared host and I have a cpanel account so the cron job config is fairly easy to make.

Here is the cron job log message:

<b>Backup Done</b><br />

<b>Backup file: /home/richrobe/public_html/

XCloner/administrator/backups/backup_2013-11-27_02-12_www.casart.fr-sql-nodrop.tar</b><br />

<b>Total backup size:658.31 MB</b><br />

<b></b><br />

<b>AMAZON S3: Starting communication with the Amazon S3 server…ssl mode 0</b><br />

<b>AMAZON S3: Unable to create bucket http://www.casart.fr-backups (it
may already exist and/or be owned by someone else)!</b><br
/>

I have used the same user name and password for the xclone account and the aws S3 account and I am able to manually uploead documents to the aws account. I appreciate any and all help.
Thanks
Rich

Try leaving the bucket name empty to see if the transfer goes through. If it works, then simply remove the http:// from your current bucket name and see if it helps.

Thanks for the quick answer.

I hadn't even noticed the 'http://&#039;. That WAS NOT part of the name (it was automatically added), but unfortunately that is not the only problem.

I changed buckets and I got this message :

   <b>AMAZON S3: Unable to create bucket casart-fr-backups (it may
already exist and/or be owned by someone else)!</b><br />

I then deleted bucket field and got this message :

  <b>AMAZON S3: Unable to create bucket  (it may already exist and/or be owned by someone else)!</b><br />

 

Thanks again.

I am SO SORRY!

I wasted your time. I never saw that abonimable password that was created. I recreated a new key and password and everything worked.

I am now going to create a complete backup and try it out to see if it is fiable.

Thanks a lot for your time and your wonderful application.

If this works, I will then try it on a joomla and a wordpress install and get back to you as an active member.
