I do not think I have mentioned this before as I wa just thinking about it after playing around with the check list in the admin zone. One of the checks is a back up.
So I made a back up and downloaded it.
I found it works very nice and even backs up the folder and contents of the folder to the forum even though it does not do the forum database this was more then I was thinking it was going to do.

I also it also is smart as when you have a back up already it does not put that in the new back up, unlike cpanel's full back up which if you have a full back up already it just add the old full back up inside the new one so if you just keep the old back ups and keep making new ones it will keep doubling in size so its nice that the ocportal back up does not do that even though its a good idea to delete the back up after you download it.

Any way while playing with it I did not see a way to restore the back up on the back up page so thats my suggestion is to have a way to restore it on that page.

This I think would be a great idea as it will make it easier for people.

Here is the idea in more detail.
On the back up page where it has the tool to make the back up plus a list of the back ups already on the server. If next to each existing back up it has restore - probably to the right or the left of the delete button. Not only that but an upload on that page to restore a back up from your computer.

Oh I have another suggestion for this same page if on the delete button it had a pop up to proceed instead of going to another page.

I run and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
