Backup Problem?


When create a new backup of my Geeklog system a message "There was an error" comes and says:

Incorrect path or mysqldump utility not executable.
Check $_DB_mysqldump_path definition in config.php.
Variable currently defined as: /usr/bin/mysqldump

Status: offline

So what exactly is not clear from that error message?

Geeklog uses an external program called "mysqldump" (which is part of MySQL) to do the backups. And obviously, that program can not be found. If you don't know where it resides, please ask your hosting service for help.
