I'm using the Solo backup for the first time (now backups made before).
After entering all related configuration data with the configuration wizard, the wizrd finished succesfully, no errors message are shown (all green).

But when I refresh the page, I get two errors:

S011 Missing root definition for backup
S012 Missing database connection information for backup

After re-entering the configuration data with the wizard and also on the configuration page, first everything is ok on the homepage (all green). But when starting a backup or refreshing the page, I get the same errors.

The config.php is fully writeable (777).
I am using the Solo Pro version and added the download ID.

Please assist

Akeeba Staff

do you have more than one backup profile?
Most likely you are running the configuration wizard on one profile, but then you are using another one to run your backup.
Please double check the root and database connection fields inside the configuration page and try again.
