Raw Rob, Zero, I am unable to reproduce the archive.sh bug where "it looks like it is working, it says “Starting archiving”, but it doesn’t actually do anything. "
Can you please elaborate how I can reproduce this issue? In the case where permissions are not enough, the archive should show an error message rather than nothing (it does in my tests)[/quote]
I was running version 1 (I assume it was 1.0, not entirely sure) and everything was working fine. Used the automatic upgrade to upgrade to 1.1.1 and from that point on the archive.sh script stopped working. It would just say “Starting Piwik reports archiving…” and then immediately return to the command prompt.
I’ve just changed the permissions as stated above and it now works as it should.
What else do you need to know?
(Thanks to Cialog and Zero for the solution.)
