I have read several posts on this matter but I cannot find a solution to my problem and would like to see if anyone could please help:
We host our own Moodle 2.7 on Ubuntu 12.04. We would like to save our course back-ups to a mounted, external windows directory. We did in-fact have it working and now the same configuration seemingly doesn't work anymore - which I know is not possible so need to work out where have gone wrong.
I am sure it is a simple error - but just cannot see it.
Our specified path is set to /mountpoint/moodlefolder
But Moodle will not accept this path. I am sure the problem is permission based, but I am inexperienced with kind of set-up and would really appreciate some help advising what permissions should be set, and where. I have read that the moodle system user should have read/write and file creation rights to the folder - which is where I come unstuck. This is probably an Ubuntu/Windows question really - but if anyone has any advise please it would be welcome.
