Better handling of configs

One thing I've noticed that drives me a little bit crazy is the fact that there is no way to click on a current saved config and load those settings so that they can be edited. When I need to tweak one of my cron configs, I have to start all over and save over the old version – which is a pain when you have more than one cron (I have several on each account – some scheduled weekly, local, or AWS uploads). 

 

Also, I've noticed that anytime there is an update it overwrites my config file – which again, is maddening. I would love to be able to have my configs saved when I update xcloner (whether it's via joomla or wordpress).

 

I have used this component for several years now and love it. These little user interface tweaks would make a big difference in my opinion 🙂

Oops! Sorry for double posting! I wasn't sure if I had posted it in the right place – so I added it to feature requests.

 

I was wondering also though about updating. Are you also working on keeping the config from being overwritten when you update the component?

 

Thank you for your quick response!

Hi there! Updating is a major concern for me at the moment, and it seems the only way i can keep the settings when updating is by using either a temporary mysql table, or a temporary file somewhere. As you might have noticed, XCloner does not uses any tables for it's internal processes, it only uses temporary files to store it's processing data, which makes it less dependant on the system and more accessible, this comes of course with a downside of having to create that administrator/backups folder in the Backup Start Path.

 

Any suggestions are welcomed, i haven't yet reached a decission regarding this at the moment. Ovidiu

I agree with you that not using any tables for it's
internal makes xcloner less dependant on the system and more
accessible. I think I may have a suggestion that would allow the functionality of modifying or confirming an existing cloner-config.  What if you just had a button that would simply read in a config file, and then populate the settings on the config screen.  you could just populate a list of all the files in the configs directory, and allow the user to choose which one they wanted to edit.
