  1. One thing i'd like to bring up is the fact that because the design of your website is separate from the back end and content of your website upgrades don't break your website. This is the largest bugbear I have had with WordPress and I no longer do ANY sites with it. It's as if a WordPress site has a lifespan - after a year or 2 I dreaded upgrades to the theme (yes even with child themes) as any update could break my client's site. Even plugin updates could break the site. And a site lasting more than 3 or 4 years - I haven't had one yet. Most of the sites I ran were designed by designers (I handled the back end) always with modifications - and I don't think I have particularly picky customers. Its just WordPress sites are so generic out of the box that you have to modify the theme. These days I have a designer do me a homepage and an internal page (saving me money compared with them doing the full site) and I implement the pages with various page layouts, blogs - whatever I want. Anything WordPress could have done I can do - though it can take some PHP programming to get what I want. (but I do get EXACTLY what I want) And I never have to worry about updates. I just noticed a site I was working on from last year was ver. 2.7 and as it's going live I decided that I'd send it off with the latest version. Update to 3.0.63 took less than 5 minutes (and that included taking a backup of the database) Give Processwire a try - there is a bit of a learning curve on your first few sites but after that (and easily reusing code) you'll never look back.
  2. Hi David Another problem - when I try to run the backup I get a 404- page not found. The url I am using from the admin page is similar to: http://www.websitename.ie/runbackup?token=XXXX29924700591dd18a9633d17c8ea34c0b2 (changed to protect the highly secret information of the client's website!!!) I'm using PW version 2.7.2 [I've tried to completely reinstall the plugin but it doidn't make any difference] Thanks for the help Rob
  3. Hi djr I solved this myself - I had put a folder in the bucket called the same as the website name (ie website.ie). When I checked the count of $objects in that section of code there was one $objects and the basename($object['Key'], '.tar.gz') resulted in "website.ie" which resulted in $ts === false (ie the boolean) so line 418 couldn't have worked. I don't know if this is a huge coincidence but an is_bool() check on $ts and if === FALSE followed by some error handling would solve this for any future users. Thanks for the great plugin. Rob
  4. Hi djr Great plugin and thanks as I think backups are really important. I was trying to set up your module and I'm getting an error in the admin section. It installed okay and I was filling out the Amazon information (the admin page worked fine when the information was wrong) and once I got the Amazon information right the admin page started failing with the error: Fatal error: Call to a member function format() on boolean in /var/www/vhosts/62/500562/webspace/httpdocs/site/modules/ScheduleCloudBackups/ScheduleCloudBackups.module on line 418 the relevant lines in the module are: foreach ($objects as $object) { $ts = date_create_from_format(self::TIMESTAMP_FORMAT, basename($object['Key'], '.tar.gz')); $date = $ts->format('Y-m-d H:i:s'); and it's the last line that is line 418. Any ideas? Thanks very much Rob
