Hi, I'm using Solo to backup a Joomla & Moodle site.
I manage the Joomla side with Akeeba Backup and the Moodle side with Akeeba Solo.
In my installation the Moodle dataroot directory is outside the site root so I set the Solo configuration as follow

because the directory is located at

But at the end of the backup the following message appear
Unreadable directory /var/www/vhosts/

In my modest opinion it looks that Solo is looking for this directory inside the site root (httpdocs) not in the level above

Could you please suggest how to properly include this directory?


You should be able to take out the [ROOTPARENT] and just use the absolute path, /var/www/vhosts/
