Hi,

I have an error message when I try to execute the cron: Please run this script from a terminal or through a cron scheduler interface. This is the first time it happens, I've used xcloner with two other sites and I've never had a problem.

I tried to execute an automatic backup from my ssh client but no backup is created instead.

Would you have a solution? Thank you in advance.

Please follow that error message, you are now required to run the script only from a terminal or cron scheduler using the indicated command.

Hi, to me is happening the same problem, I just installed XCloner3.5, and I can not run the cron from "Available Configurations", nor from scheduller server. Previously ran smoothly.

This is the response from the server:

Hi, I am running this script from a cron scheduler (if this is the correct name for the cron tab schedule tool in Cpanel), and yet I get emailed "Please run this script from a terminal or through a cron scheduler interface" messages

I am running the latest version (3.6.0) of Xcloner standalone.

What is likely causing this problem?

BTW the link in the post above seems to be dead

** EDIT - it seems the softalicious install of Xcloner was NOT up to date, even though softalicious control panel detected no updates available - it was actually only at version 3.5.0.
I downloaded latest version 3.6.0 from this website and manually overwrote all files in the installation.
Although my configuration seems to be correct, and the database user I assigned has full permissions for all my databases, and the user credentials supplied to Xcloner are enough to get a full listing of available databases on my host in the Generate Backup=>Backup Database tab, now I get error 'Unable to select database'
