J! 3.9.4: Akeeba backup fails with message 'check file permissions or storage capacity'

Post by jonBuckner1 » Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:19 am

Hi folks

Just tried updating to 3.9.4

Akeeba backup fails with message suggesting I check file permissions or storage capacity, however, when I do backup ordinarily it works fine.
It only fails with update to 3.9.4 :)

Have you checked the backup path in your configuration and confirmed you do actually have enough drive space?

Nope as back up works when doing normally... unless it is a different kind of backup when updating....

Sorry, I see what you mean. Backup On Update.

Just checked one of my sites and the Backup on update plugin offers a profile choice. So if you had more than one backup profile it could be trying to backup somewhere else?
