@Rusdy-MT It seems to me like they have revamped this option. It's now some kind of "group privilege" now. You can toggle it under ACP -> Manage -> Privileges. This came out of nowhere for me as well...
Yeah I gotcha, I know exactly what you mean. It's something we'll think about eventually (traditional documentation generated from comments within source) but moving to repo is a step in that direction I would imagine.
Glad to report that as of today, April 25th, all instances of our Premium Hosted platform benefit from backups stored via the Tarsnap backup service.
Our previous backup solution consisted of local file system backups of each instance's database contents, persisted to the local file system. This had two shortcomings:
Backups were not hosted off-site (a big no-no! 😦)
Uploaded files in /public/uploads were not backed up
I'm glad to say that both of these shortcomings have now been addressed. Luckily, we have never had to restore a NodeBB instance from back up, thanks to our reliable hosting from DigitalOcean. Hopefully, we'll never have to 😄
Thanks for the reply. We're on Redis here instead of Mongo. Sorry, I should have specified.
I did the same thing in Redis, It appears that we had a lot of "blank" notes which were just timestamps - I've removed these (or rather, I converted them over to objects with a timestamp property) and it appears to have resolved this for now.
Not sure going by the timestamps exactly what caused these notes to be added however, but I didn't want to lose the fact that something happened at that point.
