#55 Missing basedir - update documentation


When the /var/backup directory is missing (which is the default basedir), the AMB script stops with errors.

There is no mentioning in the documentation that this directory should be available. The problem is solved quickly, but it would be nice to have it in the documentation.

    I don't really think that is necessary. Before you start running the script, you have to take a look at the configuration file. Directly in the beginning you choose your directory (default: /var/backup/db). Of course, this directory needs to exist and you need write permission in it. If it doesn't exist, the program takes a look if the basedir (/var/backup) exists and you have permission to create the necessary db directory. I really don't believe, that it is the scripts purpose to create the directories for you in which you tell the script to save the data. Especially if the basedir of it doesn't even exist. These are security considerations, I don't intend to change.
