Full Version: ACP DB Backup: Save to Backup Directory + Download

It would be very beneficial adding another "Save Method" item for creating new database backup in ACP:
- Backup Directory
- Download
- Backup Directory + Download

So the file can be saved on the webspace as well as downloaded in one go.

Thinking it's no big deal in terms of PHP to combine both methods to first run the file saving functions and run the download function afterwards.


PS (to all forum webmasters).
Never forget to download your database backup from webspace and save this on another independend media.
It's a single point of failure to keep the operative database and the backups on the same webservice.
The Backup Directory feature is a discouraged feature.
