This is becoming a regular thing...

How can tar say this when it has P specified as option?
(tar cPf website-backup.tar $TARGETDIR && rm -rf $TARGETDIR). Well, I 
added a redirect to /dev/null.

These shouldn't exist; something went wrong last time which caused the 
script not to replace the old pages.

> chmod: changing permissions of `/home/httpd/www.linuxfromscratch.org//alfs/downloads/cvs/nALFS-CVS.tar.bz2': Operation not permitted

This seems to be the cause; why hasn't *fixperm.sh* fixed this?? 
According to fcrontab it should run every 15 minutes Anyway, I can't 
really fix this because I don't have permissions to remove this file 
either. The update-website.sh script won't update the site if 
permissions are wrong.

Also, Gerard; did you replace update-website.sh with 
run-update-website.sh already? It's getting a bit boring to do this 
manually each time...
