Problem with automated full backup to ftp server

    Hi all,

    we're currently trying to make a full backup of our plesk 8.4 installation and to send it to a remote ftp server. we're using the following daily cron job to achieve this (at 3am):

    /usr/local/psa/bin/pleskbackup all ftp://username:password@ftp.remote.address/backups -s=800M 1>/pathto/backup.log 2>&1

    we're using the "-s=800M" to split the backup file into smaller pieces in order to prevent connection problems during transmission to the ftp server. but we couldn't get it to work yet. the backup.log contains the following lines:

    /bin/tar: ./new: file changed as we read it
    /bin/tar: ./access_log: file changed as we read it

    can anyone help? thanks in advance!
