    Unhappy Webmin Backup errors

    Hello,

    I've been asked by my boss to backup our Ubuntu Webserver to a NASbox on site via FTP and i just can't get it to work, not even on my Office PC which i have also tried.

    I installed Filezilla Server on my office PC and set everything right, username, password, added read and write permissions to the shared folder which is on my desktop.

    And i get this error;

    Performing backup of /home/website/site/sqlbackup to 127.0.0.1:/ ..

    FTP login failed : PASS ********* failed : Login incorrect.

    tar (child): admin@127.0.0.1\:/: Cannot open: Operation not permitted
    tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now


    The password is write i just get it

    I want to backup to the NAS box really but i wanted to see if i could get it to backup to my PC first thinking if it was something on the NAS box.

    The error i get on the NASbox is;

    Performing backup of /home/website/site/sqlbackup to 10.xxx.xxx.xxx:/backup/SiteBackup/ ..

    FTP write failed : STOR /backup/SiteBackup/ failed : /backup/SiteBackup/: No such file or directory

    tar (child): admin@10.xxx.xxx.xxx\:/backup/SiteBackup/: Cannot write: Operation not permitted
    tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    .. backup failed!


    Thanks
    James

    Exclamation Re: Webmin Backup errors

    Can anyone at least tell home to map a drive of the server files on a windows Operating system so i can make a schedule backup of the files using our backup software.

    So i don't have to copy and paste from Filezilla FTP Client to the backup NASbox manually.

    Ok, this thread is kinda convoluted...Can you clearly explain what exactly you are trying to accomplish?

    I want to use the webmin backup schedule to backup our ubuntu server website to a network storage drive but it won't do it and won't even do it locally.

    Errors are shown above

    Re: Webmin Backup errors

    Sounds like you are using tar incorrectly.

    If you want to backup the whole directory, you'd need to run tar like this:

    Code:
    tar /path/to/file.tar.gz --directory=/var/www somefolder
    http://unixhelp.ed.ac.uk/CGI/man-cgi?tar
