phpbb 3.2.7 no backup download radio button

Post by genshijin » Wed Jun 05, 2019 11:18 pm

Database server: MySQL(i) 5.6.41-84.1
PHP version: 7.1.29
Board version: 3.2.7

Recently updated from 3.2.5 (all files) and surprised I could not see radio button to select download backup. Just not there.
I can only see the store locally option?

Not added any mods but may have updated a couple - nothing which modifies that admin page.

Thats no bug, its a feature... Was removed with one of the last updates. All is fine with your installation with this point.

My 2 cents: Whether an extension is in the CDB says nothing about its quality. It is more important to read the support topics for it. Better to avoid authors who do not answer support questions themselves, who do not update their stuff, and who do not fix bugs for years.

Ha! I liked my backup local files on pc - download in 1 go. As it is not a big board it was handy.
Dont really want to backup then log in host and use file manager or ftp from my phone/ laptop.

True. But now you have to download it via FTP from the /stores folder.

Maybe someone will write a mod! :P

It looks odd, that the radio button for store locally (set dafault option) is still there - serves no purpose except ambiguity.

And if you don't store it locally then would you explain to me how you can download it via FTP?
Even better, where should it be stored otherwise?

I agree that the select button should be removed, or ideally replaced with text indicating what folder it will be stored.

Local storage will be in 3.3.x. Not sure if it will be applied also to this though.

This was done as a security feature. Prevents a rogue admin from having database access solely by virtue of have Founder access. Would also need cPanel or FTP access.

I understand, and accept why it was changed. I think plain text instead of the radio button is better.

I agree that a single radio button is pointless. A text message to say that the backup will be put into the store folder would, in my opinion, be a better option.

I agree, and of course, it is just a simple edit the the html file in the adm/style folder for the next and future versions.

one could also just install one of the many download scripts on the server and set it to download wherever and whenever you want it to.
