I dont understand meaning of this error, pls help me with this.
thank you in advance.
Are you sure that the user your are using to login to webmin and/or actually run the backup has permissions to write in this /Applications directory? That's probably it, but it can also be a disk full problem or it can't find one or more of the sources that you trying to backup. Could happen if you select a module to backup that you don't use, for example, if you tell it to backup the postfix module, but don't actually postfix installed, it can give you that error also.
