Hi,

I am going nuts… I have several websites in the root and xCloner as standalone installation. I am trying to backup each subfolder individually. So I specify the corresponding subfolders in the respective config files. However when the cron job is running, I get an error message, because xCloner cannot find the backups folder. And from the error message I see that xCloner expects the backups folder to be in a subfolder of the subfolder I have specified in the config:

Required sql backup directory /www/htdocs/userfolder/subfolder/administrator/backups is not writeable or does not exists!

But of course it's not there, because I have xCloner installed on the userfolder level, like so:

 

userfolder

—-xCloner

     —- administrator

          —– backups

—-subfolder domain 1

—-subfloder domain 2

—-subfolder domain 3

 

What is going wrong here??

Thanks.

XCloner requires the administrator/backups/ folder to be created inside the directory you want to backup, it's used for storing some temporary files, howeve it needs to be there, so creating it inside each of your subfolders should help.
