Re: Delegating backups

I fail to see why someone else needs to be able to download a database backup. I explained that. It's to protect against the hosting service 'disappearing' (e.g. suddenly going out of business) and the online backups thus becoming inaccessible.

Delegating backups

I take a 'hands off' approach to a forum which I own (i.e. of which I am the founder) and delegate all admin roles to others, including backups. This worked fine when I was running phpBB 3.2.2 but I have recently upgraded to 3.3.0 and the option to download backups has been removed from the ACP. I u...
