Error: Backup directory does not exist. Please set


Recommended Posts

I just switches web hosts & now I'm getting this message @ the top when I go to Admin --> Tools.


Error: Backup directory does not exist. Please set this in configure.php



Here's that section of configure.php:

  define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/');

  define('DIR_WS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_CATALOG . 'includes/languages/');

  define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_LANGUAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/languages/');

  define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_IMAGES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'images/');

  define('DIR_FS_CATALOG_MODULES', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'includes/modules/');

  define('DIR_FS_BACKUP', DIR_FS_ADMIN . 'backups/');


the backups folder does exist in the admin folder, and the permissions for it are 777 so i'm not sure why i'm getting this message.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
