Backup Error...


Recommended Posts


I have installed and configured oscommerce v2.2 and everthing works perfectly, except for the backup option on the admin section.

When I click on it, all I get is this error:


Fatal error: Call to undefined function: tep_get_local_path() in C:Websitescatalogadminbackup.php on line 290


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Assuming your using Win32 and your path is what was shown in your error message, the function tep_get_local_path() is defined in c:websitescatalogadminincludesfunctionsgeneral.php.


Open that file up and check on or around line 792 to make sure it's there.


If it's there, then I'm not sure what the problem could be. Did you make any modifications or add any contributions?

Did you add the the dir "backups" in the admin root dir. Then you need to make it writable. Or Linux chmod 777.


hallo I get error !how can I do? I have add 777 but not work.

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