open the /application/controllers/BackupController.class.php and look at the 3rd line, the value of the MYSQLDUMP_COMMAND constant should point to the mysqldump binary on your server.

I had to change this because on my hosting service the mysqldump binary is at /usr/local/bin, so I changed the line to the following
Code: [Select]
if (!defined('MYSQLDUMP_COMMAND')) define('MYSQLDUMP_COMMAND', '/usr/local/bin/mysqldump');

Thanks.

But it didn't help. My binary is at /usr/bin so I changed it to
Code: [Select]
if (!defined('MYSQLDUMP_COMMAND')) define('MYSQLDUMP_COMMAND', '/usr/bin/mysqldump');
But I still get the same error.

hi,

i am pretty new to this - however my first steps feel really like "home"!
from what i can tell (so far), you have put together some amazing tool... and: the more i see, the more i like it...
:)

but, one thing: i also get an error when trying to backup.

here's the error code i get (i hide the full path on my server with "***"), while "og" is the folder in which i installed opengoo.
something wrong with the server setup maybe?

i'm running version 1.3.1 on a (shared) webhosting server (virtual server). usually i don't have much trouble with this, however i'm no pro in such things (otherwise i could eventually figure this out by myself).

thanks for any ideas / info / insight! :)

.................

thanks ignacio,

-> tmp/backup/db.sql
is there

if i am not erring from the error-report i posted, there is some problem with zip-generation. any idea, what this could be related to?

i googled around a bit...
i now succesfully could run a backup, after doing this:
(my php version is "5.2.6 standard")

i downloaded the "php.ini" that apparently has been installed with the opengoo installation (in the same folder).
i opened the file in a text editor and added this to the php.ini:

extension_dir="/usr/local/lib/php_modules/5-LATEST"
extension="zip.so"


saved + overwrite the "old"/original php.ini in the opengoo folder.
i hope this causes no security risks...

thanks! :)

oops.

it tells me "backup successful"... but it doesn't show a downloadable file...

thanks for any help!

Hi,

If you got the message "backup successfull", a link "Download backup" should appear between "Launch backup" and "Delete backup" (it does not specify the filename or other info, but takes you to the file).

Other way is going to your "tmp/backup" folder, if backup finished successfully, a file named "opengoo_backup.zip" should be there.

Please tell us if something is missing.
