Blog >> API Version 1.5 for Improved Compatibility & Reliability

The myRepono Backup API has been updated with numerous enhancements to improve the API's compatibility, performance, and reliability.

It is strongly recommended that all users update their API to version 1.5 using either the manual or automated API installation tools, or users running version 1.4 may be able to take advantage of the new API upgrade tool.

New Features & Changes
  • Revised restoration process which improves performance and reliability, and reduces memory usage.
  • Recursive directory filesize calculations can now be disabled.
  • Numerous compatibility improvements for Windows servers, and irregular/edge-case server configurations.
  • Changes to reduce incomplete database backup issues when using default mySQL backup process on restrictive shared hosting.
  • Improved temporary file removal after failed backups.
  • Tests for 'mysqldump', 'split' and 'csplit' command-line tool support adjusted to fail on servers which restrict the escapeshellarg() PHP function.
  • Usage of escapeshellcmd() PHP function replaced with escapeshellarg() function.
  • API debugging and compatibility test improvements.
  • Error logging is now enabled by default.
  • General improvements to API's performance and memory usage.

For detailed information regarding the new features and configuration options offered by version 1.5 of the API, please refer to the API Configuration & Customisation documentation.

We will shortly begin sending API upgrade requests to all users whom are running version 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 or 1.3 of the myRepono API to encourage all users to keep their APIs up-to-date. Remember, API version 1.4 and above support automatic upgrades.

myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin

Users of the myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin can upgrade to version 1.1.4 of the plugin to provoke an automatic upgrade to version 1.5 of the API.
