Backup Error

Post by no1uno » 2006-09-20 13:40

Hi all

After installing HMS and running it for a few days, I decided to change the directory that the data files are in. I made the necessary changes in the INI file and worked well.
However, now when I run the backup I get the following error message:
2006-09-20 21:20:41.218 Backup started
2006-09-20 21:20:41.218 Loading backup settings....
2006-09-20 21:20:41.265 BACKUP ERROR: All messages are not located in the data folder.
I am hoping someone has an idea of what the problem might be.

Cheers

Well, the error messages says what's wrong. For the backup to work, all messages ust be located in the data folder. In your case, they are located in two different places on your system and then the backup doesn't work. In this case, you need to do a manual backup my doing an database export and copying the data folders using som bat script.

Thanks Martin, that makes sense.
I was able to open the .sql file and change the details for the data directory.
Backup now works.

Cheers
