Installer to archive changed pages during upgrade
|Reported by:||nonegiven||Owned by:|
Yes, I know, it is the user's responsibility to back up and that they are warned ... BUT ...
the installer should backup changed pages during the upgrade process and zip them into an archive to be saved on the server and/or downloaded during the process according to the admin's preference.
Let's face it, we all get caught out at some point.* It is worse for newcomers.
I always thought phpBB3 upgrader was the benchmark in this department showing you the changes, and allowing you the choice to merge or overwrite during its upgrade process.
(* NB 3.0.2 makes changes that wipes out simple customizations as I have just found out on a demo site!)
