Hi folks,
i use rdiff-backup through a tool called backup ninja... up to some days
ago everything was fine but then suddenly (i am daily updating my home
station and the server) i got:
Fatal: rdiff-backup does not have the same version at the source and at the
rdiff-backup are both 1.2.1 and the version variable is set so too. Python
is 2.5.2 on both machines. As the site is launching tomorrow i need to
backup ASAP so i looked around a bit and put ignore_version = yes into my
config file. Then i tested it, this is the result:

Hi Marcel,

Something has changed in your login shell on the remote server. It is printing some text before rdiff-backup executes.

The next version of rdiff-backup has support for catching this error case and giving the user a more informative error message:

Please make sure that nothing is printed (e.g., by your login shell) when this
command executes. Try running this command:

   rdiff-backup --test-server address@hidden::/path
