Yep i know this extension, but i think is a very good enhancements to the built-in phpbb backup system and infact the smart david used a phpbb cron for doing those tasks. So the step to be an official ext is really close in my opinion
I would not disagree that those comments - however if any backup routine is using the phpBB routines then there should be enough confidence in those routines to be able to accept their validity.Mick wrote: ↑Mon Feb 12, 2018 10:37 amI have an issue with auto backups from a bad experience years ago. You can backup the DB as much as you like but if the back ups are flawed because of whatever it’s a waste of time. You can’t beat a phpMyAdmin back up and a quick check on your local PC. For something as important as this it’s paramount to be sure your back up is good.
Agreed but, for me, it’s too big a deal to assume everything is good, I was brought up assuming nothing.
I did try it and it worked but I’ve had 3.0 ACP backups that worked in the past but it’s the reliability that concerns me. It’s hard for me to be comfortable with doing a backup without checking it’s validity.
You assume that everyone uses a host that provides such services! The services you describe are usually provided by shared hosting or managed dedicated/vps companies however i'm sure there are many out there just like myself that use both Dedicated and VPS (unmanaged) servers where there are no backups, control panel or support (other than account related) offered.
