UpdraftPlus latest release now includes support for backing up and restoring SQL triggers

UpdraftPlus are happy to announce that we have been hard at work on a new update that we are now happy to share with you. The latest update of UpdraftPlus 1.16.10 includes several additional fixes and tweaks, including an all new feature that gives support for backing up and restoring SQL triggers.

Structured Query Language (SQL) is a standard computer language that is used for relational database management and data manipulation. SQL users typically use it to query, insert, update and modify data. Developing specific triggers that meet your SQL requirements can be a long term project with in depth processes that are unique to your specific database queries and requirements.

With UpdraftPlus 1.16.8, you will never have to worry about losing your valuable SQL triggers again should you suffer an issue with your site, such as a virus or a malicious hack. So from now on, when you are using SQL to perform tasks such as update, analyse or retrieve data from your database, you can be assured that should the worst happen UpdraftPlus will allow you to restore the SQL triggers that you have developed, saving your valuable data, time and effort.

As well as this new feature, UpdraftPlus 1.16.8 also come with several other fixes and tweaks to make your UpdraftPlus experience even better.
