    Hey guys, just got this error message when trying to add web/cache and web/backup to the directories to exclude from backup. Please see attached screenshots. I typed it exactly as per the hint on the right and even tried it without the asterisk * but still didn't work. Am I missing something here?

    It will allow me to save it if I have either web/cache or web/backup, but not both using a comma to separate.

    You did not read the instructions. It says to separate with comma, you separate with ", ", that is comma and space character.
