Backup & Restore module Not Working

Hi all,

I’ve just installed Debian Squeeze (64bit) with Asterisk and FreePBX All seems to work fine except the Backup & Restore module.

I’m trying to FTP the backup and made sure that the name of the schedule does not include an spaces, but it still doesn’t want to create and ftp the backup.

Even if I try the Run Backup Now option nothing happens.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas on how to resolve this will be greatly appreciated.


Thank you mbrevda the ftp binary did the trick.

The backup script is excepting a binary by the name of ftp

exec('ftp -n '.$opts['ftphost'].' < '.$opts['ftpfile'].' ',$ftpres);


I’ve actually found the backups it created in /var/lib/asterisk/backup, so it looks that it will not FTP them.

Which makes me think, is there a prerequisite so my system can FTP them?

Do I need to install something else?

Please help.
