I have been forced to run WordPress 3.3.1 on a Windows server. (Backup Buddy and server buddy run fine on my Linux installs).

Running server buddy Version 1.0.2 gives a plain white screen with this error:

PHP Warning:  fileperms(): stat failed for D:\www\[domain removed]//wp-content/uploads/ in D:\www\[domain removed]\wp-content\plugins\serverbuddy-by-pluginbuddy\classes\view_tools-permissions.php on line 99

This is a plain WP install with only server buddy installed.

The server is: Windows NT WORDPRESS 6.1 build 7601 (Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition Service Pack 1) i586

Can Backup Buddy run under windows and any idea the source of this error message?

Many thanks

Answering my own questions:

This error was because the install was fresh and WP had not created the uploads folder.

Fix was to upload a single file (thus creating the uploads folder) and then server buddy ran OK.

Server Buddy passed this Windows server on most tests, with only warnings.

This page gives you the details you need:

Note to developers - might be worth a test for existance of uploads folder?

Hi Mjpg, :)

Thanks for posting this and the follow-up! That will indeed be a good test for BackupBuddy's Server Info page (We're starting to focus more on the Server Info page and will update ServerBuddy based on that more)! It would be a good idea to suggest that to the WordPress team also: to let you know whether or not the wp-content/uploads folder was created.
