I am trying out Updraftplus.
In the official Updraftplus FAQ, you explicitly state that “The database is backed up into an ordinary SQL (text) file“. Source:
However, when I run an Updraftplus backup of my WordPress SQL database and download this backup locally, it seems always to have been compressed into a .gz format.
The fact that I could decompress the file with e.g. 7-zip nothwithstanding, your current FAQ appears to be misleading, wrong, or both. I have looked through the Updraftplus settings, but cannot find anything regulating database backup compression.
Would you please inform me how to use Updraftplus to backup the WordPress database directly into an uncompressed “ordinary SQL (text) file”?
If this is not possible, would you please change your current FAQ?
Thank you for a useful product.
