I am trying to set up a local snapshot folder.
I have created a folder outside the web root /backup/snapshots and granted permission and tested access at shell level for the user of teh web account.
However when ever I input /backup/snapshots into teh location field it gets ignored and stays with the default location in the web root i.e. ...../wp-content/uploads/ and wont take the absolute path provided.
Have I missed something, or miss understood something?
