I had to restore my files + database today after I absentmindedly clicked "Reset Options" on the OptionTree configuration page. I had just performed a file + database backup, so I should be able to get my options restored, right? Nope. Fat chance. Gone; and there's hours of spec'd work in there that's simply history, despite my aggressive backup strategy.
So, now I'm worried on a bigger issue. I can scramble to restore this data, but if I couldn't restore this information by restoring the database and file structure, how reliable is the migration process to a live server? Where is the optiontree data stored? I click "Save All Changes" but where, exactly, are these changes saved?
