Hi,

Does anyone know what this log message is because its just does nothing when I select Backup:

[100310 20:50:45] Saving Kettenrad instance
[100310 20:50:45] Kettenrad :: Attempting to load from database
[100310 20:50:45] -- Loaded stored Akeeba Factory

Eddie,

Is that the entire log? If not, please zip and post the entire log file. There is a lot of useful information in the log besides where it stopped. :)

Hi Dale,

Thats all in the log, and I have left it for about 15 mins to try and backup

Go to the Akeeba Configuration screen and press the Save button, even if you don't make any changes. That is all you get in the log with that bug. :) Then you can retry your backup.

Hi Dale,

It works - I had to uninstall - reinstall - did a reconfig - save and tried a backup.

That failed. So I went back in configuration - saved and tried backup. This time it worked.

Thanks for the help

It isn't supposed to be that complicated. I read a post by Nicholas the other day that said he considered that requirement to save the Configuration a bug. He'll squash it. :) In the mean time, it is a one time bug, it is fixed on that install now.
