Hi, I have a demo website up that i'd like to allow users to test and muck around with, but to automatically restore it periodically (say, twice daily) from a clean master copy. The site is running as a subdomain off a primary domain, so it's all in one directory. There are no databases involved - all just flat files. Demo users will not add any information I want to keep - it's a clean wipe and rewrite, automatically.

Can XCloner be used in this situation?

Hi Michael! XCloner does not have this functionality built in, however with an additional script the restore process can be called automatically, simply do a test restore and record the restore urls you are displayed in your browser, record them, then use curl to automatically load them in another php script.
