I can’t backup my MySQL DB

Nov 4, 2013 by redBee

I can’t backup mysql database using my cPanel Backups option. I have a few DBs but none of them appears in my cPanel backup. All the other setting display though. I checked the configuration package permissions and they seem ok. Not sure what is causing this
Can anyone please help?

Are you using a custom style? This might be a style issue. Try to switch to the default style

This could be caused by an invalid ownership of files. Check your file permissions for the directory /var/cpanel/databases/ and change the ownership of those files to "root:$username".
