    Hello, I've used the backup settings to migrate from my testing server to the live one. can't find where if anywhere it's putting the file or information? Where can I look for this?

    If it's currently not possible to take the settings across servers, I highly recommend this be added in.

    Thanks though.

    Yeah, the most common way of backing up settings is base64encoding the settings to simply store them in a rather short string. Unfortunately WP themes dir does not allow base64encoding.
    So I've made use of transients, which means your backups are stored in a transient (a row in wp options) named eo_bc_bsul_{DATE} or eo_bc_bsul_{BACKUP_NAME} .

    As for the solution: You can copy the relevant row and insert into wp_options table db in new server manually and it should be available under backup list.

    Of course there are alternative ways to tackle this, like using var_export to output settings as text for copying, or downloading as file for importing later. Maybe I'll change to one of these.

    Marking as resolved, let me know if you've further questions. Also please rate the theme if you havent already, good luck.
