Options Missing on the Database Backup and Restore Tabs in Administrator Control Panel

Post by Stewguy »

Support Request Template
What version of phpBB are you using? phpBB 3.2.8
What is your board's URL? n/a
Who do you host your board with? self-hosted with XAMPP
How did you install your board? I used the download package from phpBB.com
What is the most recent action performed on your board? Fresh Install
Is registration required to reproduce this issue? Yes
Do you have any MODs installed? No
Do you have any extensions installed? No
What styles do you currently have installed? proSilver
What language(s) is your board currently using? English
Which database type/version are you using? MySQL(i) 10.1.30-MariaDB
What is your level of experience? New to PHP but not phpBB
What username can be used to view this issue? No answer given
What password can be used to view this issue? No answer given
What actions did you take (updating your board; installing a MOD, style or extension; etc.) prior to this problem becoming noticeable? Fresh Install.
Please describe your problem. In the ACP, I noticed that action options were missing from the Database Backup tab. The only action option available is 'Store locally', despite the documentation saying there should be 'Store and Download' and 'Download' also there. Likewise, in the Restore Database tab, the Download button for downloading the backed up database was missing.

I assume there may be some sort of setting in XAMPP that needs to be changed from a default setting... or there may be a bug? But after googling it, I could not find anything close enough to what I was experiencing. If phpBB is looking for some settings here, what settings does it want for those options to show up in the Backup/Restore tabs?

Thanks!

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.

The download option was removed as of 3.2.6.
The documentation hasn't been updated yet (and I opened a ticket for that some time ago already)
We should embrace problems, without which there wouldn't be any solutions.
