I'm trying to set up a backup system using rsnapshot which will copy files from a remote location into a local one. I've got rsnapshot set up, as far as I can see correctly, but when I run rsnapshot configtest it says
'backup web3:backups/ web3/ - Source directory "web3:backups/ " doesn't exist'
The configuration line I'm using is:
backup web3:backups/ web3/
It's using an alias in the hosts file. However, I've also tried using the ip address and defining the user name in the command, but neither of these works either (same error). I've also checked and cmd_ssh is enabled and pointing at a valid file.
Does anyone know what might be causing this? It's getting pretty frustrating at this point as I've managed to get most of the backup systems working and I'm sure I've had this working before as well. I've tried it with ssh and rsync, and both seem to view web3:backups as being a valid network location
