If System Backup on your Directadmin server fails to upload to a remote storage via SCP, and you are sure that RSA/DSA key is fine and there is not issue with connectivity, then here is a possible reason and a solution.
A system backup (aka sysbk) on Directadmin server allows incremental file-by-file transfer to a remote SCP server (see settings on the attached image). And due to how scp works it will certainly drop errors similar to the following:
Transferring httpd.conf.tar.gz to aa.bb.cc.dd: scp: backups/05-06-16/custom/etc/httpd/conf/: No such file or directory Transferring httpd.conf.md5 to aa.bb.cc.dd: scp: backups/05-06-16/custom/etc/httpd/conf/: No such file or directory
SCP cannot create necessary directory structure in such a case, and therefore transfer fails.
In order to solve the issue download a patch from here or/and run this:
# cd /usr/local/sysbk/internals # wget http://files.plugins-da.net/dl/patch/internals.sysbk.patch.txt -O internals.sysbk.patch # patch < internals.sysbk.patch
You should see the following result:
patching file internals.sysbk
P.S. md5 sum of internals.sysbk before patching:
md5 sum of internals.sysbk after patching:
Directadmin servers now should contain a patched version of the internals.sysbk. So you can simply download it from there.
Attention, if you unpack sysbk.tar.gz over the existing installation, your custom configuration will be lost.
