Trouble with Cron and IP

I wouldn't be surprised if I'm just doing something wrong, but I have installed Xcloner for a client on two sites, and I'm testing on the smaller of the two.

When I click to 'execute cron', I get

Using configs/solomonsuccesscom.php as configuration file

Starting /home/solomons/public_html/wp-content/plugins/xcloner-backup-and-restore/cloner.cron.php

Access Denied for ip *********

I added that IP to the whitelist box, but still get the same error.  This has been for 2 days.

Can you give me some suggestions?


Also, I found my first scheduled cron backup on the ftp site where I wanted it, but there is no copy of it in the local backup folder.  I do NOT have 'Delete backup after transfer' checked, so I expected it to be in the backups path.  However, I am using the same folder for both the temporary backup and the regular backup.  Could that be the problem?

After adding the IP to the Allowed ip's list, did you re-save the custom config file? Try that,it should work afterwards.


As for the backup presence, check the full cron log and see if it's any mention regarding the backup deletion. if you like, post it here also to have a look.

I didn't understand your response at first, but I do now.  I needed to type in the config file name and save.  That fixed that. Thank you.
