Today i was backinup up a website in linux shell command though my ssh sesion, i send the tar command, waited a little while, then i got a respond back that said:
tar: web7/log/error.log: file changed as we read it
so what now? What happened? What went wrong? Did my file was copied? WHy this error come up? these were all questions on my mind.
But i found out that Linux created the tarball file, when i unpacked it, i saw that all the files were created, i guess during the the creation of the tarball, my system wrote a erro in the error.log file and that's why i got this error: tar: web7/log/error.log: file changed as we read it
so if you are also getting this error, no worries, its ok. your tarball file should have been compressed/created fine.
