problems with rsync
 
When I run rsync I get:

Code:

rsync: opendir "/var/www/web5/user/web5_rsts/Maildir" failed: Permission denied (13)
rsync: opendir "/var/www/web5/user/web5_rsts/.spamassassin" failed: Permission denied (13)
rsync: opendir "/var/www/web5/user/web5_test/Maildir" failed: Permission denied (13)
rsync: opendir "/var/www/web5/user/web5_test/.spamassassin" failed: Permission denied (13)

Although it does successfully copy some files.

Also, when I try to automate the rsync process following the tutorial, it still asks for a password, then fails.

Code:

root@mirrior1:~# rsync -avz --delete --exclude=**/stats --exclude=**/error --exclude=**/files/pictures -e "ssh -i /root/rsync/mirror-rsync-key" someuser@clients1.myserver.com:/var/www/ /var/www/
someuser@clients1.myserver.com's password:
bash: /home/someuser/rsync/checkrsync: /bin/shcase: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [receiver]
rsync error: remote command could not be run (code 126) at io.c(454) [receiver=2.6.9]

Yes I actually created a user account "someuser", following the tutorial.

Any suggestions?

One other thing, when I ran:

Code:

ssh-keygen -t dsa -b 2048 -f /root/rsync/mirror-rsync-key
as root, it told me that the key needed to be 1024 bits so I changed 2048 to 1024 and re-ran it.

Please run the rsync command as root user, otherwise the process does not has the permissions to copy the files.

I was careful to run commands either as "someuser" or root as specified in the tutorial.

Yes, but if someuser has not the permissions to read files, it can not be synced :)

What's in /home/someuser/rsync/checkrsync?

/home/someuser/rsync/checkrsync
Code:

#!/bin/shcase "$SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND" in        *\&*)                echo "Rejected"                ;;        *\(*)                echo "Rejected"                ;;        *\{*)                echo "Rejected"                ;;        *\;*)                echo "Rejected"                ;;        *\<*)                echo "Rejected"                ;;        *\`*)                echo "Rejected"                ;;        rsync\ --server*)                $SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND                ;;        *)                echo "Rejected"                ;;esac

The problem is that you have everything in one line. It must look like this instead:

Code:

#!/bin/sh

case "$SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND" in
        *\&*)
                echo "Rejected"
                ;;
        *\(*)
                echo "Rejected"
                ;;
        *\{*)
                echo "Rejected"
                ;;
        *\;*)
                echo "Rejected"
                ;;
        *\<*)
                echo "Rejected"
                ;;
        *\`*)
                echo "Rejected"
                ;;
        rsync\ --server*)
                $SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND
                ;;
        *)
                echo "Rejected"
                ;;
esac

There seems to be a permissions problem. Can you, for example, post the output of
Code:

ls -la /var/www/clients/client1/web1/cgi-bin/
?

BTW, you use ISPConfig 3, not 2, right? Because this is the ISPConfig 2 forum... ;)
