I like your work Tim.
Which Pulse version does have this missing Blocks problem ? I have checked several Pulse versions (including version 4.5.2 the latest ?) and I could not find an incorrect backup with missing Blocks. When and why was the backup of the Blocks changed ?
I have implemented some extra improvements to Tim’s auto-backup.php script :
- The sorting of the backup files is incorrect due to the 12 hour time format and the missing preceding number for the hours in the timestamp. I changed it into a 24 hour notation and changed the filename format in military date-time notation yyyy.mm.dd-hhmm.
changed line 35 into :
$today = date(“Y.m.d-Hi”); // date(“m.d.y-gi”);
this results in proper file sorting
I added the date(“Y.m.d-Hi”) function also to the email subject. That way you can avoid message chaining by Gmail.
Saving to the cloud : I use Sendtodropbox.com to deliver the zip-file into my Dropbox.
To restore a Pulse website more easily I like to add in future to the backup procedure also the complete template folder and files like :
