Please look at the bottom of this page (under Support Policy Summary) for our support policy summary, containing important information regarding our working hours and our support policy. Thank you!

IMPORTANT! Please remember to ZIP and attach your backup log file. Without it we are unlikely to be able to help you with backup issues. Thank you!

I can do a backup "manually" without problem, but not with a cron job.
The total size is about 3 Gb, and I configure to save in 256 Mb. files, and always stop in j09 file and always this file is 84.570.654 size.

The max time in the server is increased to 400
I send you the log file.

Thanks
Carlos

(The abababab key is not the real one )

Carlos,

Your command for the front end backup is wrong. That command requires wget or curl at the beginning and requires the max-redirects argument for either one of them. You can look at the Scheduled Backups option in Akeeba Backup for the exact format of the command for your site.

Good morning Dale.
In my server, when I configure the cron-job, I cannot write curl...... or wget.....
It must begin with http....

I tried also with "webcron.org" and "cronless.com" and there is always error....

Any idea ??

Thanks
Carlos

Dale, I talked with my server and tomorrow we will "write" the cron job directly by command line interface, and not by "standard" way on their control panel.
Today I am not at home , and then we will do tomorrow.

Wait my reply and thanks

Hi Dale, some time ago, I did a cron job in other server, and before " wget...." that you indicated in your docs, we must write something like "*/... " with the days/hours to execute the cron...
Is correct ??
If not, how I can know when will be executed ??

Please let me know how you make out with the alternate CRON. If that doesn't work, we can take a look at why Webcron isn't working.


Yes, that strange string controls when the CRON job will be executed. That is usually filled in on a form in your cPanel. Only hard core geeks do it by hand. :-)

Dale, now is working !
With "Putty" and the help of "cronjob generator" (to write correctly the "strange string") , we save the cron jobs directly to the linux server in the command line interface.
And also with the great help of my server tecnical service, that explain me how to write / edit a cron in the editor of Linux.

I run some times the backup "manually" from the command line interface, with no problem, and faster than the control panel of "Solo" , about 10 minutes instead of 35-40 m.

Now I will wait this night the scheduled backup....

I will inform you tomorrow.
