Backup fails frequently with error "no such file or directory"

Hello all,

I have 2 servers running the latest Virtualmin (GPL) and they both frequently send me emails about failed backups.
The logs show that every domain is going well (backing up) except the last one which i quoted below:

The 3 errors logs parts are from different days.
I have replaced username and domain name with XXXXX

Any ideas of how to solve it?
Thanks in advance.

hi akumanara,

do you looking for help to solve your issue in docs or you need virtualmin folks to help you? in any way I can help you with issue as well - of course for small help back to me… le me know. tara.

Had this happen to me over the last 10 years of using Virtualmin and never made notes as usual.

Try fixing permissions on virtual server to begin with. Limits and Validation area.

Also check users in mysql area.

Probably a bug.

Reset users etc.

Regards.

Same problem… Any solution here ? I need functional backups. Every day i get a message from failed backup. wtf, this is not normal…
