Backup problems, but mysqldump path is correct


When I try to backup, I get the message:
Incorrect path or mysqldump utility not executable.
Check $_DB_mysqldump_path definition in config.php.
Variable currently defined as: /usr/bin/mysqldump

I checked with my hosting company (Hostdime.com) and they say that this is the correct path.

I've also found while searching here that I have the proper chmod rights on the backup directory and other directories spelled out in the documentation. I've set up in the config file:
$_CONF['mysqldump_options'] = '-Q';

Is there something I am missing? Any suggestions?

I had this problem with a Apache on windows. I solved it by adding .exe so it read .../mysqldump.exe and I no longer got the error. Now I get zero byte backups. Looking into that problem now.

Thanks for trying, but I'm using a linux server... Doh! - that was a mistake
