Hello Akeeba, so I'm having a problem with this Alice analyzing the log files of failed backups, it's not letting my backups get stored in our amazon s3, we have many sites, and this can be a problem in most of them or all of them, how can we fix this? or what is the solution for this problem thank you 


have a good day 

Akeeba Staff


I'm sorry, but what's the problem? Backups are not stored on your S3 account?

Please remember that ALICE will work only on failed backups (ie the backup did not complete), so even if it wasn't transferred to S3, technically the backup successfully complete.

Can you please attach a log of a backup that did not upload to S3?
