I create a fairly simple backup schedule .. it says to backup

says it cannot find the file /_backup/20101125/myArchiveFilename.

I know it can't find it, it doesn't exist ;) So how am I supposed to
configure Webmin to do Filesystem Backups to a given file in a
directory, and have a new directory created each day?

There's no need for VirtualMin on this server, otherwise that may have
been an option; but here I'll have to rely on Filesystem Backups (both
to a local target and a remote target).


It looks like webmin isn't passing '-p' to mkdir ... it can't find it because mkdir hasn't been told to make every dir in the path ex: 'mkdir -p /foo/bar' would create

/foo first and then bar/ under foo.

This could be a typo in webmin or your part. Can you paste us webmin's puke?
