Support » Plugin: WP MyBackup » unusable

    • Plugin wants to write to tmp/log in plugin folder. On secure servers, plugins folder is not writable. Plugin should write to uploads folder
    • Plugin writes settings file to tmp/log, readme says: don’t delete, settings are here. In other words; upon upgrade of plugin, settings are deleted because the plugin folder is overwritten
    • After install, the settings page keeps refreshing. setup not possible

    Plugin promises a lot, I really want a WebDAV backup plugin, but this one — in it’s current state — is just unusable.

    Hi, thank you for your review (although it sounds more like a bug report to me 🙂

    I will fix the writing to plugin folder on secure servers issue.
    Regarding the settings file to tmp/log issue, the plug-in creates a self-backup just before it gets updated. After update it restores the old settings.
    Regarding the page keeps refreshing this is a bug I’ve recently discovered. The plug-in comes with a self-defense .htaccess file which uses an Order directive that is compatibile with Apache v2.2 but not with v2.4, thus the .js|.css folders cannot be accessed so yes, in that case the plug-in is not unusable.

    Anyhow, I am working to fix these bugs and hopefully these days the new version gets published on WordPress server.

    I just want to add that the current version writes all its temporary data to wp-content/upload/wpmybackup directory which should be fix the problem you’ve mentioned in your review.

    The refresh bug was also fixed. It was rather an Apache configuration issue (introduced by Apache 2.4 backward incompatible Order directive) that I was not aware of.
