Hi there,

 

I'm a noob to this software as well, and had the same problem!

To get round it, create a folder in the catalogue/admin folder called "backups"

Then go to the control panel, backups and perform the backup

 

Should work!!

Also make sure that you add write permissions to the folder as well

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

the folder should be called 'backups' (note the 's' at the end)

 

it should go in catalog > admin

 

Check that your configure.php within catalog > admin > includes file says this:

 

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

 

cheers
