make

cool, thanks

what does this mean.

web# /scripts/cpbackup
send to CONTACTAIM (2) [1]
send to CONTACTEMAIL (3) [1]
send to CONTACTUIN (2) [1]
/backup is not mounted at /scripts/cpbackup line 169.
web# connecting...

should i be editing a config file? it didnt seem to do any backing up.

I get an email from the server saying

The backup was not able to be completed because /backup could not be mounted

Any ideas on how to mount it>

try:

mount backup

If it says "can't find backup in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab" then do:

mount -t ext2 /dev/hdc6 /backup

replacing the hdc6 with whatever partition your backup is in.
