Hi,

I'm new to bludit and considering it as my main blog cms because it's so lite and I like it.. But I need a little help here. When I try to download the backup using backup plugin, it gives me 404 not found.

Is there other way to backup my post and the images?

Thanks.

There's a small dissonance between security and backup feature in bludit.
Basically backup archives are created and stored in /content/workspaces/backup directory but rewrite rules block access to /workspaces directory.
It's understandable as the archives aren't even password protected.

You can copy those files through ftp, or get rid of workspaces dir in proper rewrite rule in htaccess file. I won't recommend second thing as it opens a security hole (zip files contain crucial user data)

So, FTP is the only secure way.
Thank you for the feedback.

This is a problem and has to be fixed. There is already a ticket:
