Create and/or restore assets backups from ProcessWire admin.

ProcessAssetsBackups - Assets/Files Backup Module for ProcessWire

This module provides an admin interface for the following assets/files backup functions:

  • Creating new backups in ZIP format
  • Uploading previously created backups
  • Restoring backups to site/assets/files
  • Providing info on existing backups
  • Managing existing backups (downloading, deleting, etc.)

Requires ProcessWire 3.0.62 or newer.

Known Issues:


  • Restore does not work reliably with large files on Windows when Avira Antivirus real-time protection is activated. Consider adding an exception for sites/assets in your dev environment or deactivate real-time protection while restoring.
  • Created ZIP-files cannot be opened with Windows explorer due to ./ path prefix
  • Backup descriptions are not implemented yet
  • Until this module can do anything fancier than plain file uploads, web server and PHP must be configured for apropriate upload filesize limits.

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
