today I just tested WP-Online-Backup on my local Laptop on a test installation with WP 3.4.2 and the latest 2.2.15 version. Want some simple safeguarding before starting the 3.5 upgrade work. As this test installation is locally on my PC only on XAMPP, no need to encrypt.
I have ngg-gallery installed and a somewhat big picture gallery that I want to exclude, which is under c:\xampp\htdocs\wp-content\gallery
In the general section I therefor added
to the custom exclude list… together with a checked “uploades” exclude.
Then run the manual backup in order to discover that I cannot “download” the file… (not sure why, other problem) but on the filesystem I can find a 31MB php file… So I start to suspect that the gallery exclude was not considered. I look into the PHP, just to discover that it’s basically a ZIP with some php-code in front… Stripped the extra bytes in front and open the ZIP … voila… wp-content/uploads was excluded, but wp-content/gallery is in… i.e. the exclude spec didn’t work.
Any trick there?
Thanks in advance, Herbert
