Backup & restore database



  • Hey,

    A great feature that would be very useful would be being able to backup / restore databases from the control panel (at least for the base forum, not considering plugin related data), it would be easier to change hosting solution and scaling up as time goes by.

    Thanks a lot !

    Hello @Benderwan -- thanks for the suggestion! It's something that we think would be great, although it is not always possible because of different configuration issues.

    As you can imagine we don't lock down the way you configure your database so some installs might not have access to the dump files or may not have access to the right privileges to back up to disk, and that is the reason why we don't have that right now.

    To add to Julian, we do support taking backups and downloading them on our managed hosting service since the installation is same on all instances.
