I am totally new to Wordpress and XCloner - so please be very basic with your help so I can understand it Confused.  I have installed XCloner and don't have a clue how to set up the backup store path.  Please help.  (I don't know how to create a directory, either...)

Hi there! The Backup Store path is where you want to store the created backups, could you post here a screenshot after your XCloner Config first tab as well as the Info tab?

 

For directory creation, any online ftp tutorial might help

OK, so try and set these values:

 

Backup Start Path: /home/londono3/public_html/

Backup Store Path: /home/londono3/public_html/administrator/backups

 

Please note, you need to create the  /home/londono3/public_html/administrator/backups directory and make it fully writeable

Well, I went to my server- godaddy - and we uploaded all the xcloner files onto the server and made the backup file writable.  (We did not change anything in the backup file - just made it writeable.  So, I'm hoping that the file you asked me to create was already there and we made it writeable.)

Then, I uninstalled and reinstalled the XCloner plugin on my Wordpress site and the Backup Start Path automatically said:  

D:/Hosting/7129828/html/wordpress//

and the Backup Store Path was blank.

Then I tried to put the backup start path and backup store path that you provided to me into the spaces in Wordpress.  It will not save the backup start path, but will save the backup store path.

 

Am I getting closer?

Ah, so the server path you have there is actually this D:/Hosting/7129828/html/wordpress/

 

Then try and use that for the Start path and this one D:/Hosting/7129828/html/wordpress/administrator/backups for the Store Path, make sure you also create it and make it fully writeable

I think I've got it!  Went back to godaddy and they helped me make changes to make XCloner work.  Thank you so much for your help.
