Fix BackWPup Cannot create folder for Logs

When running a backup job the following error is shown:

Cannot create folder: /hom/dir/public_html/wp-content/uploads/backwpup-9f3bea-logs

I got this error when changing my web hosting company.  After some searching, I could not find a solution.   But after browsing the settings for BackWPup, I managed to fix the problem.

The following fixed the problem:

  1. Hover the mouse cursor over the BackWPup menu item on the left
  2. Click on settings
    backwpup error create folder log settings
  3. Select the log tab
  4. Press the reset all settings to default button (This will reset all configuration in the settings menu to default.  If you do not want to do this then you will need to change the folder path manually in the Log file folder text box.)
  5. Save the changes once you have done this.
