I loaded my Geeklog site from Fantastico, and everything is working fine except for the DB Backups. When I try to "Create New" to create a new backup, I get this:

-----------

There was an error:

Incorrect path, security restriction in effect or mysqldump utility not executable.
Check mysqldump_path definition in the Configuration.
Check open_basedir settings in PHP.
Path currently defined as: /usr/bin/mysqldump

-------
:doh:

Could you help me out a bit. I tried to find the path it was asking for, and I didnt see it. Is that path supposed to be in the public_html, or above the public_html? Could you tell me what needs to be tweeked to make this message go away and for the DB Backups to work so I can keep Geeklog on my site for many, many moons from now. I'm not exactly sure what this error message is trying to tell me to fix.

Dbman plugin


This plugin allows you to backup/restore Geeklog database WITHOUT using mysqldump(.exe).
