The e-commerce.

no backup directory


Recommended Posts

In the Database Backup Manager, I get an error that says, "Error: Backup directory does not exist. Please set this in configure.php." but I don't know how to change the file or know what to do with it. All else on the install has gone well.

In the configure.php file the code having to do with the DB is like this:

// define our database connection

define('DB_SERVER', 'localhost'); // eg, localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('DB_SERVER_USERNAME', 'root');

define('DB_SERVER_PASSWORD', 'my password');

define('DB_DATABASE', 'oscommerce');

define('USE_PCONNECT', 'false'); // use persistent connections?

define('STORE_SESSIONS', 'mysql'); // leave empty '' for default handler or set to 'mysql'


It lists the directory "/var/www/html/catalog/admin/backups/" but there is no button to click to backup.


all help greatly appreciated.

I'm having a similar problem but my backups directory does exist and the permissions are set. However the path that is given in the Backup Databse Manager is wrong and i can't see where to change this.


For some reason the backup path has an extra subdirectory inserted which doesn't exist.


Please help, how do i correct this error?

The error is in your configure.php, check there
