Unable to access wp-admin after using importbuddy.

Hello all,

I am new to websites/wordpress, and using importbuddy to setup a wordpress theme.  I was able to upload/install it, and the website is up and running, but when trying to access the wordpress admin page http://domain/wp-admin, I receive 2 errors.

1. Warning: ZipArchive::open() [ziparchive.open]: Unable to access /home/abc123/public_html/wp-content/uploads/backupbuddy_backups/temp_test_503bc206d5aa8.zip in /home/abc123/public_html/wp-content/plugins/backupbuddy/lib/zipbuddy/zipbuddy.php on line 444

2. Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/abc123/public_html/wp-content/plugins/backupbuddy/lib/zipbuddy/zipbuddy.php:444) in /home/abc123/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 881

In # 1, the temp_test.....zip does not exist as I checked via FTP.
This is the code on Line 444
                        if ( $zip->open( $test_file, ZIPARCHIVE::CREATE | ZIPARCHIVE::OVERWRITE ) === true ) {

Not sure about # 2.

You may need yo change that folders write permissions to enabled . Set permissions to 777 with ftp client for testing.

/home/abc123/public_html/wp-content/uploads/backupbuddy_backups/

this and all upfolders through /home/abc123/public_html/

If cant finds file site tries to create as it seems.

If this doesn't works try to move importbuddy folder from plugins to root temp folder you create. For last option you may need to reinstall over the same db -after backing up-

No responses from multiple users, none of the user fixes worked. I found the solution on my own.
