    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... ;)

    Hi, I have the same problem. I dont want to use root for rsync but I dont know how get read rights to some user.

    This is my output

    Code:
    root@sue:~# ls -la /var/www/clients/client1/web1/cgi-bin/
    total 8
    drwxr-x--x 2 web1 client0 4096 Oct  6 10:07 .
    drwxr-x--x 6 web1 client1 4096 Oct 10 10:03 ..

    If you use web1 as the rsync user or any user that belongs to the client0 group, everything should be fine. I don't recommend to change permissions of your web folders as this might result in unpredictable behaviour.

    Thanks but, I want to sync by some user from WWW directory. If I add new web I dont want adding new backup process. Can you help me with this? Now I can do that by root user. I think its not good:)

    But that's the best solution if you want to sync directories that are owned by different users/groups.
