How do you guys backup photos ?
Hello everyone, I've searched the forum but haven't find anything on photos backup.
I do backup by using Cute Pro FTP client but it won't completely download a folder that has several thousands of photos. I was able to download completely a folder that contain 1000 photos but not the folder that contain 29,000 photos.
My gallery show there are 29,000 photo on a particular category but Cute Pro will only downloaded about 1990 photos then stop... the status say: "transfer complete" but it's not. Anyone with this problem ? Is it a FTP client problem ?
Is there a better way to do backup ?
I tried to use the backup option in the Admin panel but it has the following error:
Command being used to execute dumps (specific tables are executed individually):
/usr/bin/mysqldump --opt -h localhost -uabc_xyz -pxxxx cbc_abc
Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: Stat failed for /home/sites/photopost/backups/photos.sql (errno=2 - No such file or directory) in /home/ganoico/public_html/photopost/adm-misc.php on line 1937
Warning: photos.sql is 0 bytes or did not get created.
You should double-check your .sql files to be sure the backup completed successfully.
What do I need to do to get it working properly ? When work, is this the way everyone use to back up their photos ?
