DreamObjects Backups

Backup your WordPress site to DreamHost's DreamObjects.


April 2015 by Ipstenu

  • Hashes and 4.2 compat.


December 11, 2014 by Ipstenu

  • Changed SDK to newest version: 2.7.9
  • Corrected deprecated warning with WP-CLI


August 11, 2014 by Ipstenu

  • Changed SDK to newest version: 2.6.12 (official release notes)
  • Many code concepts learned from Amazon Web Services.
  • Added support for ZipArchive, with graceful fallback to PclZip if needed, to fix Windows unzip issues
  • /cache/ folder is not backed up anymore
  • Backs up wp-config.php sometimes... (if you put it in a weird place, I'm not responsible)
  • Backup ignores wp-content if it's nearly 2G (blame PHP, not me!)
  • Zip has shorter paths (unzipped, it's /dreamobjects-backup/wp-content/etc)
  • Improved multipart uploads, which should allow for large files in a better way (worked up to 428M!)
  • Force disable on Multisite, which you shouldn't be using since it breaks six ways from Sunday anyway
  • Security tightening: hiding things, making things harder for people to run, safer command usage
  • Improved debug logging
  • Removed uploader for both security and support reasons. It was bad and I feel bad.
  • New wp-cli command: wp dreamobjects resetlog (resets the debug log)


May 1, 2014 by Ipstenu

  • Beginning deprecation of the uploader. If you're using it, it'll stay.
  • Changing images to CSS


Jan 23, 2014 by Ipstenu

  • AWS was being picky and doing things that users don't care about. (Props @renoirb)
  • Cleaned up some PHP 5.4 functions


Nov 21, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • Change blindness. What happens when you copy the wrong file over and don't even notice. (Props araucaria)


Nov 20, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • Wrong use of echo -- _e() should be __() (props Marko and Shredder)
  • TARDIS error. Any time you pick a timezone that was +GMT, it mathed out totally wrong (props DreamHost customer Jeremy C!)
  • Clean up scheduled hooks on uninstall
  • Error message for PHP less than 5.3
  • Outright failure to activate on Multisite (this is intentional, it's NOT supported)
  • Added cache-buster for compatibility with DreamPress/Varnish
  • MP6 ready (aka will look nice on WP 3.8)


June 24, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • Changing how the backup is done to make it smaller but also to support more configurations. Now it only backs up wp-content.
  • Increased timeouts for SQL


Mar 28, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • Dropping support for PHP 5.2, since AWSSDK did it first. It's not me, Mom!


Mar 19, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • PHP 5.4 support required updating the AWSSDK (props Shredder)
  • Added in an actual checkbox for super debug mode
  • Edited AWSSDKforPHP/services/s3.class.php to work with CEPH


Feb 11, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • The shortcode was broken. No one noticed. Not sure what that means ;)


Jan 23, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • Fixing timeout with large zips
  • Fixed Multipart for files over 100megs (props Stephon)


Jan 16, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • Massive re-write. Now using The full SDK instead of Amazon S3 PHP Class (Thank you Stephon, Shredder/@GetSource, and Justin at DreamHost)
  • Security level up: Using register settings and the nonces the way WP intended (thank you @no_fear_inc, @rarst, @trepmal)
  • Logging now covers uploads, plus has more information for debugging.
  • Moving DHDO::, messages, registering settings, and many other things to their own files.
  • Fixed lingering debug warning with translations.
  • Using the MultiPart uploader, which should handle larger files.


Jan 3, 2013 by Ipstenu

  • Optional logging (good for debugging)
  • No longer takes a backup right away when saving settings (good for testing lots of stuff)
  • Hiding keys if set for security
  • Reset option (wipes all settings)


Dec 30, 2012 by Ipstenu

  • Fixed date/time issue with backups displaying wrong (did not impact functionality, just bad date conversion)
  • Changed refs of siteurl to home_url, in order to fix wp-cli backups going astray under certain conditions
  • Security fixes (from duck_ aka Jon Cave)


Dec 21, 2012 by Ipstenu

  • Made a change to how times are generated using current_time correctly, vs time (props Regan, a DreamHost customer, for letting me log into your site!)
  • Changed date() to date_i18n() (thank you @Rarst for your 'tsk' - it lights a fire)
  • Cleaning up debug errors
  • Fixed uninstall


Nov 1, 2012 by Ipstenu

  • Backup retention - chose your own adventure.


Oct 11, 2012 by Ipstenu

  • Uploader added
  • Shortcode to list uploaded files added
  • Moved New Bucket code to the main settings page, where you can see your buckets now


Sept 27, 2012 by Ipstenu

  • All minor changes, but since people had been using 1.0, I thought a kick was in order.
  • Security (nonce, abspath, etc)
  • Better defines
  • wp-cli (still not 100%)


Sept 2012, by Ipstenu
