Zip

Link to this post 22 Jul 11

My server runs Ubuntu (not that it's too relevant) and I wanted to make a backup of my files. My computer runs Windows (I do have winrar installed) so I wanted to make a zip archive. So I installed zip told it to add all the files inside my web home folder to a zip archive, so it did. But when it got done I got the following message:

Zip warning: Not all files where readable. Files/entries read: 12399 (1.7G bytes) skipped: 10 (1.2K bytes)

Does that mean that those ten files were not added to the archive or that they weren't compressed? Now that I think about it, I'm guessing that they just weren't compressed, but I already deleted the file because at the time I was thinking that those files weren't included.

If the selected user cannot read the file then the user cannot them to an archive. You will need to correct the file rights or archive the files using a user with permissions to all of the files.
