tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I'm attempting to tar and gzip all files on a site, and I get this message during tar:
Quote:
Error exit delayed from previous errors
There is a symlink directory in there, but from what I can tell that shouldn't be a problem. How can I figure out what the problem is and avoid it?

Re: tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Are any folders or files included that you don't have permission to? (I think I remember getting that when I accidentally included the stats directory for example.)

No errors or messages at all listed between the time you issue the tar -czpf filename.tar.gz directory-to-tar command and the time you get the error exit delayed?

Re: tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I discovered that PuTTY can log the session, and I used that option to see that
Code:
tar: www/stats/dostats: Cannot open: Permission denied
If I was sure that everything else was tarred fine, I'd ignore this, but since I don't know if that's the case I'm continue to work on what to do about this. I think I read somewhere how to tar everything except a certain directory and I'm going back to find those instructions now.
