Release Notes

Schedules a backup for your the following items:
 - data dir
 - settings.php
 - .htaccess
 - full db (mysqldump)
 - mail a zip
 - upload it to a ftp location

Can also manualy request a backup to be downloaded (button in the admin settings) or tested based on configured settings.


Depends on:
 - cron working! (daily, weekly, monthly)
 - email provider accepting large files and zip files (when using email option)
 - you need to save the settings once!
 - phpmailer plugin (only for backup-to-mail option)
 - php modules zlib, zip, ftp and openssl must be installed
