Hi well I would like to find out if I can restore my website from external ftp say I set up my back up to go to my ftp but when I go to restore my back up I have to manually upload them to root site but why can’t you add a code that would say in importbuddy.php were we can tell it to look at the external ftp location to get the back rather than having to upload the main back to the root of the ftp. Why I would like you to add this to 5.0 is as my internet connection is very slow and upload a site takes me very long time this way I don’t have to wait as the backup is already in secure ftp location all I have to do is call for it by providing a url path where its located or give it my log in ftp details were it can go and then deploy the back up using only ftp. Can I ask you to add this as I use another back up plugin called backupcreator as it has this feature but I really like back up buddy more and this why I am asking for this feature.
