Rsync woes


hi guys,

one of my server(development production) does rsync with a few other web servers (live production).

Recently it props up an error saying about mkstemp error or something.. sorry i got no sample error message as it suddenly work again..
but the error points to files within the specified directory for transfer which are hidden.. and are swap files..

for example, we edited some template files (call template.tpl) and the error will point to .template.tpl.ADJBncfod (the ending extension seems random)



thanks

They are tmp files - like the ~ prefixed files for everything else.
I would check that dir's perms - see if you can loosen them up a bit - just for fun...to see if that makes a difference.

Yah end up its because someone ran the rsync script using another user name, causing the folder ownership to change!

many thanks!

ps: where you guys reckon i can find a good site to learn abt scripting cron and rsync, shell script etc...
