Thank you for testing... it is a beta, after all...

However, I will say, reporting issues on another site is useless. Here or github are the only places that reports should be made.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Also, that report is nonsense. Settings_bak.php is not supposed to be included, it's a backup of the main Settings.php file made when changes are made to the file. Why would it be included when it can *always* be regenerated by the software itself whenever it is needed?
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

So why is one included with SMF 2.0 download package then? You can always download both 2.0.14 and 2.1 Beta 3 and compare it to see for yourself.  ;D

And when you say one gets generated auto on server after making changes to settings. Not so sure about that, one didn't get auto created on mine after saving some server settings. I still kept seeing the warning text saying Settings_bak.php permissions was wrong - then when looking on host saw none was present.

*shrug* That's what's _supposed_ to happen, at least. That's what the _bak part indicates, it's a backup.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

Awesome! Cannot wait until the final release, 2.1 looks to be great just like any other SMF version! I'm going to test beta 3 on a local server tomorrow and give back some feedback about it. ^^

Great work everybody :).
