Re: Backup Script Error


Dear All,
The issue had been solved. The instance user (dhis) didn't have
permission to the sub-folders in the backup directory; i change
permission and it is OK.

backup user (testuser) created is giving a link to the directory so
that he can have access to the directory which makes him to be OK.

I hope members will check their instances because it is important we
check our instances from time to time in case anything had broken.
