I'm trying to use wpbackup (which has worked in the past), I'm getting the following:

Cannot create folder: /mnt/vhosts/betterwaytolive.net/httpdocs/wp-content/uploads/backwpup-4da2ee-logs

What exactly is this telling me is wrong? I was thinking it might be permissions, but I can't see anything wrong. I'm sure it is obvious, but I can't see the problem.

Thanks for your help. I trust someone is going to show me exactly what I can't see. You guys always do. Appreciate it.

Not sure if this is correct, but it may be that your file space on the server has all been used up. If you are not down loading and then deleting backups this can be an issue.

I wish I could help you, Brenda. I backed up manually using Kyle's training on the export feature. https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/wa-affiliate-bootcamp-content-keywords-and-conversions/backing-up-your-website

Good Luck!

Guess we'll both watch someone point out the obvious that our eyes are refusing to see. I remember you admitting to the same "eye problem" I have.

Hello,
I can't provide you with an answer personally. However, perhaps this blog from Marion might help: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/mblack/blog/backup-your-database-before-upgrading-wordpress
All the best,
Brandon

Yep it would have helped, but my problem is WPbackup USED to work and now doesn't. When I found out it wasn't working because of a cron problem???? the explanation said something about no (or low) traffic being the problem. I have NO traffic, so that explains why the automatic portion no longer works.

This is a new error when I try to select "run now".

I'm sure it's an obvious thing and I'm not seeing it. However, I'm not the only one that will learn here. I know I've had SO many answers before I got frustrated enough to ask myself.

Thanks anyway Brandon. Good link, but not the problem I'm having.
