I'm a newbie to Backup Pro / Backup Pro(ish), and also to Cron jobs, and was hoping someone could help as this is happening on every site I've tried to set up.
I have Backup Pro(ish) installed on a site now (I'm hosting with A Small Orange). If I go and click on the Backup Database tab, everything works great and a backup is created in the correct folder (above root). If I use the URL given to me under the "Cron Commands", it will create a backup. However, my Cron jobs are not creating backups. To create the Cron job, I went in and selected the frequency to create them, then pasted the full command (wget ?ACT=xx&type=db) into the command line.
It runs, as I get an email. Here is the message that I get (IP and correct URL are removed)
--2013-09-20 12:00:01-- <MYSITE>?ACT=xx Resolving <MYSITE>... xxx.xxx.xx.xxx Connecting to <MYSITE>|xxx.xxx.xx.xxx|:80... connected.

Any other suggestions on what to look at?
Thanks in advance!
