Hello Ovidiu,

Excellent plugin... thank you!

I get an error message (see below) when I initiate a backup... though it does not prevent the backup, I would still like to fix this.

I notice two things: the double slash "//" before the "administrator" directory... and the fact that there isn't an index file in that directory.

So: 1.  Will putting an index in that directory fix the problem? and; 2. Where do I need to go to remove the extra slash?

Cheers,

Tim

Hi Timothy, the index.html needs to be put inside the directory administrator/backups directory to disable the accidental directory browsing, which would be a security concern, so create that file, can be empty, and issue 1. will be fixed! As for 2., simply remove the extra slash from the end in your Backup Start and Store paths inside the XCloner Config area.

 

Hope it helps! Ovidiu
