I am interested in Backup Buddy. However, I have tried the backup solution WP Twin earlier and I could not use it because my webhost doesnâ€™t allow me to use the following functions: <span style="color: #000000">symlink, shell_exec, exec, proc_close, proc_open, popen, system, dl, passthru, escapeshellarg, escapeshellcmd</span>. <span style="color: #0000ff">Do I need some of those functions for Backup Buddy?</span>
Your test plugin ServerBuddy did perform green on all Server Configuration parameters except for two yellows (= Warnings) on
- Zip Methods: I have only ziparchive and pclzip available and my webhost is not willing to enable the use of exec.
- and on PHP Magic Quotes GPC which is enabled instead of disabled. Question: does this setting absolutely need to be disabled?
I would love to try Backup Buddy but cannot risk to loose the money on buying a plugin that I connot use.
<span style="color: #0000ff">Do you think Backup Buddy will run on my webspace, based on the above mentioned information?</span>
FYI: I live in The Netherlands and thus I have a Dutch hosting provider which is not in your Host Compatibility list.
I hope to hear from you soon,
Thanks and kind regards,
