UpdraftPlus release latest update: Includes fixes for resuming an interrupted restore and Dropbox server issues

UpdraftPlus are happy to announce that we have released brand new updates for both the UpdraftPlus Free version (1.16.11) and UpdraftPlus Premium version (2.16.11).

As part of our efforts to continually improve UpdraftPlus, we have fixed the option of the user being able to restore the update from a point of error that was encountered during the restoring process. Issues that could occur during a restore might include a restore time-out, loss of connection or an unintended error. This option saves users time as you will not have to restart the restore process from the beginning again should you encounter an issue.

Another change we have made to the latest update includes a number of helpful tweaks to the Dropbox backup process. As users have had some issues with their servers using Dropbox, the update will hopefully help keep things running more smoothly and resolve these problems.

As well as this new feature, the latest update also come with several other fixes and tweaks to hopefully help improve your overall UpdraftPlus experience. .

The changelog is as follows. We recommend the update for all users.

  • FIX: Issue which prevented the downloader UI being removed during a manual entity download (regression)
  • FIX: Regression in 1.16.10 whereby restore resumptions did not correctly resume because the jobdata had not been loaded
  • TWEAK: Update UpdraftCentral description and internationalize strings
  • TWEAK: Handle HTTP/2 responses from Dropbox on some operations
  • TWEAK: Add a timeout on Dropbox quota look-up operations during backup, in response to cases of faulty outgoing HTTP proxies
  • TWEAK: The backup_finish() method should not have been private; could cause a harmless PHP abort when manually stopping a backup
  • TWEAK: Wrong variable context could cause failure of SFTP progress recording
  • TWEAK: Update to the current series (4.6) of yahnis-elsts/plugin-update-checker (paid versions), thereby inheriting improvements including suppressing some unnecessary background updates checks“`

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.

UpdraftPlus announces features including a faster UpdraftPlus Clone and more reliable backups with new 1.16.6 release

UpdraftPlus have been hard at work on the latest update and we are happy to announce that UpdraftPlus 1.16.6 has been released and is now available.

We have also made updates to UpdraftClone that has made the feature faster and more reliable, improving this popular service further.

Improved performance from UpdraftClone

Additional, we have made it much easier to users to purchase UpdraftPlus Premium from within the plugin. So instead of being forced to leave the plugin and purchase Premium via our website, you can now make the purchase from within the plugin, saving you a lot of time and trouble.

You can now purchase Premium from within the plugin

We recommend the update for all UpdraftPlus users.

  • PERFORMANCE: Modify a condition in the zip-batching algorithm so that greater acceleration in the zip-batching algorithm is allowed on setups allowing very long PHP run times on the initial (zero-eth) resumption
  • PERFORMANCE: UpdraftClone now sends larger chunks over the network, leading to faster sending of data
  • PERFORMANCE: Force UpdraftClone to use a 100MB split size for better performance (previously intended, but not always working)
  • TWEAK: Upon restoration, WP’s cache directory will be emptied (by default it is not included in backups, so in theory this is a no-op, but the occasional case has been seen where it got populated during the restore process)
  • TWEAK: Add support for the new Europe (Stockholm) (eu-north-1) AWS region in Amazon S3
  • TWEAK: Advise the user if they changed the plugin’s slug (and so won’t be able to get updates) (paid versions)
