Backup/restore feature giving pfsense tag error ?
Hi while I am getting grips with pfsense install, I have had to reinstall it dozens of times since the backup/restore feature is not working properly, I must be doing something silly here.
I go to diagnostics>back/restore
Hit download configuration button
It downloads "diag_backup.php"
When I want to restore it I click browse, find the file above and hit restore and it comes up with
"The following input errors were detected:
You have selected to restore the full configuration but we could not locate a pfsense tag"
Any idea? thx!
That is the page not the file. Thd file you should download is config.xml
Not sure why that's happening. Have you tried different browsers?
Some download managers are too stupid and grab the php file, and not the file that the php is going to send it. I had this trouble with FreeDownloadManager - had to cancel and the built-in Firefox downloader would take over and do the right thing.
thanks guys yes you were both right I was using free download manager. Clicked cancel and then the xml config file popped right back up, its a life saver and now I can try and mess about with the other settings to get my other ports working knowing I can restore at will :)
