Hi,

I am trying to get the Cron executed Backup to put to a filesystem on another account. I have created the file system in /home/backupsite/public_html/backups/myfiles.

 

I have added an FTP account with access to this directory.

 

When I run the Cron after configuring it

 

I get the following message – any ideas what is wrong please?

 

Backup file: /home/me/public_html/mysite/backups/mysite_XCLONER_Cron_Scheduled_Full_Backup.tar

Starting ftp transfer:

Connected to Normal http://ftp.backupsite.com Mode: Active

Warning: ftp_put() [function.ftp-put]: Can't open that file: No such file or directory in /home/mysite/public_html/mysite/administrator/components/com_xcloner-backupandrestore/cloner.cron.php on line 236

FTP upload has failed for file
/home/mysite/public_html/mysite/backups/mysite_XCLONER_Cron_Scheduled_Full_Backup.tar
! Stopping ….

 

Thanks

Try and recheck the ftp upload path, it might be wrong… Ovidiu

Hi

Which path am I looking at please – it is referencing a path on my existing website where the cloner.coron.php file exists – this path is not avalable on my backup website. 

 

Can you advise whether I am looking at the path in he cloner.configuration.php file 

 

Also, could you provide an example of a working path please?

The ftp upload path(from the Cron settings area, ftp details) can be verified by using any ftp client like filezilla, if you can to paste the current value you've setup now, i might be able to give you further indications….

Thankyou for your advice – I have as you said used filezilla to test and prove the connections.

I have identified that because I set up the ftp account with a default directory, then there is no requirement to specify a directory at all in the cron_ftp_path. By setting this value to $_CONFIG['cron_ftp_path']=””; then the ftp correctly puts to the filesystem as required.
