    Hello,

    I noticed that for a while my plesk backup task keeps hanging. After I kill the process, the summary backup log sais:
    Phase 2/2: packing data
    /bin/tar: ./error_log: file changed as we read it
    /bin/tar: ./access_log: file changed as we read it
    /bin/tar: ./error_log: file changed as we read it
    07:06:14 ERROR Failed to create MIME message

    I haven't managed to find any detailed information about that error, I hope someone from here can give me a hand.
    Thank you!

    Hello,

    Please, check permissions on backup folder and it's sub folders. Right permissions are:

    grep DUMP_D /etc/psa/psa.conf | awk '{print "ls -ld "$2}' | sh
    drwxr-x--- 7 psaadm psaadm /var/lib/psa/dumps

    Also make sure that is is enough free disk space on dump partition.

    Please, check the following article for more information:

    Thank you

    Hello,
    Thank you for your reply. The permissions are ok, it works just like this on another server, Plesk 8.6 too.
    The root backup cron is:
    30 0 * * thu /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup -v all --skip-logs /backup/becks_backup_`/bin/date "+\%Y\%m\%d\%H\%M"`
    /backup is a NFS mounted partition and its permissions are:
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 14 Oct 1 00:07 backup

    Any ideas?

    Edit: the actual backup file is writen, but i doubt it is clean and uncorrupted since the process backup hangs for hours..
