I set up a cron to use the 'check backup status' script but it's retuning an error each time it tries to run.

Could not load the backup engine; file does not exist. Technical information:
Path to check-failed.php: /home/USERNAME/public_html/akeeba/cli
Path to factory file: /home/USERNAME/public_html/akeeba/cli/../Solo/engine/factory.php

When I check the cli script, it looks for the file with a lowercse f, but when I check to see if the file exists, it's uppercase Factory.php

If I change that in the cli script then it runs without any problems:

$factoryPath = __DIR__ . '/../Solo/engine/Factory.php';

Akeeba Staff
Thank you for the heads up! This should be uppercase Factory.php, not lowercase. We will fix that for the next release. You may change that line in your file in the meantime.
