MT request: The BIG, RED button
Heiko reports from his adventures in reinstalling Movable Type over the weekend.
Here's a request to the MT team: a big, red button on the main page allowing a dump-all backup including authors, categories, entry-IDs, templates etc...
Rebuilding an MT installation at the moment is a nightmare most users pray won't happen to them...
Thats true when it comes to doing a backup of the installation from MT, but if you're using MySQL for your content, then rebuilding an MT-installation isn't such a big deal - at least if you remember to do a MySQL dump of the database.
Jarle - would be nice with a one-button-does-all solution, though. For example your configs (archive paths etc etc) are not in the MySQL database...
