Hi, I´m pretty happy with xcloner, clean backups in less than 5 min... owsome,

but there is a way to compress the db in gzip?, there is a limit to upload db

in phpmyadmin to 50mb, I try to compress the db with win rar, in zip directly from

file manager and with win rar I have a terrible error log, and with the zip

the system tell me:

You try to charge a file with an unknow format (application/zip), this kind of compresion

may not be implemented or maybe is... well is in spanish and my english is poor :-/

"Usted intentó cargar un archivo con un tipo de compresión desconocido (application/zip). Este tipo de compresión puede no estar implementado o quizá no ha sido habilitado en su archivo de configuración."

will be nice if xcloner made this for us.


Thanks 🙂Laugh

To compress the database file, simple extract it from the backup archive (administrator/backups/database-sql.sql file) and then simply compress that file to gzip or zip, then upload it through phpmyadmin...


Hope it helps! Ovidiu

Thanks Ovidiu...

I was trying to do that, but I found a better option... directly in file manager there is an option to

compress the db... works instantly...


Thanks againg...
