troubleshooting backups

    I've just set up Plesk on a Debian sarge server. This is my first plesk installation.

    When initiating a backup from the web interface, I recieve an email informing me that the backup failed with the generic message "Some error occured during backup: resulting dump is removed".

    Since no information on this is given, how can I troubleshoot this problem? Is there a log file about this somewhere?

    Thank you in advance.

    backupmng.log is the output from backup manager crontab entry.

    doctoras2:~# cat /tmp/backupmng.log
