Restore from downloaded backup

<< < (2/3) > >>

MrPhil:
Well, there's no harm in making a second database, restoring your backup, and seeing if it works. If it restores without error, point your forum to it and see if all the data seems to be there. Odds are it won't work, but you can at least fix restore errors (formatting of the .sql file) and get to the point of seeing if all the data is there.

Yes, it would be nice if SMF would fix (or remove) such broken features. Apparently, maintenance is very low on the developers' priority list, while kewl new feechers is hot. You have every right to be upset with them.

Barring that, it would be helpful if someone from support staff would post a sticky on the 1.x and 2.x support boards advising users of the admin backup problem, and explaining other backup options.  This is a frequent topic, and somewhat critical in cases such as this thread.

I've moaned and moaned and moaned.

It's been ignored and ignored and ignored.

It IS in the wiki, at least, since I bloody made sure it was.

No point in a sticky, coz everyone ignores them. :(

Guess who's gonna try, yet again...?

It always worked perfectly on my box, up until the backups simply got too big for php to handle. What reliable stats do you have to support your claim that 99% of the time it's corrupt?

Colin:
Haven't had an issue with any of my clients, but then again I have heard many who have.
