PKP Bugzilla – Bug 5652
Last modified: 2013-05-29 16:12:09 PDT
Suggestion: Add a "Backup Option" to the system administrator's menu, which follows the steps that you laid out in the "backup" section of the user guide. (It would back up the critical files and data base.) Presumably, the sysadmin would tell you a writeable directory, and this is where the full file with all components would be deposited.
Even better would be an automatic backup system, which runs every night, but this would be too much to ask.
There is already a backup plugin for OCS (see http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=4914). It might actually be worth thinking about porting this to OJS and adding to the stable of included plugins for both.
A Backup plugin was recently added to OJS (2.4.x IIRC).
