First minor revision of 4.0 version is here. It has updated gdr2 library and number of bug fixes. Big thanks goes to Frank P. Walentynowicz and his solution for getting valid date based on time zone. I have added pair of functions for that and they will be used instead of WP ones.

Bug fixes include: inconsistent dates in the backups now fixed with new functions, duplicated action for unloading jqueryui, minor issues with debugger printing of arrays and objects and broken loading of translation files. gdr2 library has several new functions and many improvements to some of the core functions also.

  4. And finally some cosmetics. In /forms/cron/jobs.php $key is a correct timestamp therefore date("r",$key) is misleading.
    Replace line:
    echo ''.date("r", $mykey).'';
    $tmp = str_replace("0","",date("O", $key));
    $offset = (int) $tmp;
    $mykey = $key - ( $offset * 3600 );
    echo ''.date("r", $mykey).'';

    Please wait...
  5. Line to replace should read ( of course, sorry ):
    echo ''.date("r", $key).'';

  6. When I try to run a backup job from Cron Scheduler using ‘run now’ I get:
    Fatal error: Cannot use string offset as an array in /home/fw2scom0/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gd-press-tools/code/backup/backup.php on line 27

      I will check that. There will be one more minor revision on Friday.

    2. MillaN says:

      Yeah, current code wasn’t capable of running jobs with run now, if the job has arguments, and backup job does, so it will break always. I have already changed that and new version does this properly. Thanks for other time related suggestions, I have already made changes to cron/jobs panel.

  8. Plugin fails to find wp-config.php if this file is not in the root of the installation. In my case it resides one level below ( not ./wp-config.php but ../wp-config.php ). Two places are affected: Security -> File System – not found ( minor problem ), Backup -> File System config file is missing in both tasks Full Website Content and Config and HTAccess ( major problem ).

    Please wait...
    1. MillaN says:

      I will add alternative locations to both security and backup.
