Hi. I’ve got xcloner installed and working on a Joomla 3.5 site. If I click on Generate Backup, backup files are created, corresponding to the settings I’ve made in the Cron section of the settings.
I’ve created an app in Dropbox and successfully activated it. It’s still in development stage but, according to Dropbox, the only difference is that it’s limited to 100 users so that hopefully shouldn’t affect things.
In my site’s cpanel I’ve set up a cron job with the following command:
No backup files are created either on my server or sent to Dropbox.
My server emails me the following:
–2016-04-08 23:00:01– mysite/administrator/components/com_xcloner-backupandrestore/cloner.cron.php
Resolving mysite… 126.96.36.199 Connecting to mysite|188.8.131.52|:80… connected.

If I use links instead of wget I get the following email:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/jailshell: links: command not found
If I use lynx I get:
Your Terminal type is unknown!
Enter a terminal type: [vt100]

For the above, I’ve replaced my site’s URL with ‘mysite’ because the forum thinks I’m trying to post links 🙂
I don’t get any cron log emails from the xcloner script.
As you can guess, I’m certainly no expert on cron jobs! I’ve been through all the dropbox related threads here but haven’t found an answer there and am just wondering what I’m missing.
