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)
