BackupBuddy Settings: Basic Operation
The following settings are including in the Basic Operation section of the Advanced & Troubleshooting Settings tab.
Lock archive directory (high security)
[Default: disabled] - Check for enhanced security to block backup downloading. This may result in an inability to download backups while enabled on some servers.
When enabled, all downloads of archives via the web will be prevented under all circumstances via .htaccess file. If your server permits it, they will only be unlocked temporarily on click to download. If your server does not support this unlocking, then you will have to access the archives via the server (such as by FTP).
Delete all backup archives prior to backups
[Default: disabled] - Check if using compatibility mode & exclusions are unavailable.
When enabled all local backup archives will be deleted prior to each backup. This is useful if in compatibility mode to prevent backing up existing files.
Include ImportBuddy in full backup archive
[Default: enabled] - Uncheck to skip adding ImportBuddy to backup archive. When enabled, the importbuddy.php file will be included within the backup archive ZIP file. This file can be used to restore your site. Inclusion in the ZIP file itself insures you always have access to it. importbuddy.php is only included in full backups and only when this option is enabled.
