Blog >> API Version 1.8 for Improved Compatibility

The myRepono Backup API has been updated to address edge-case compatibility issues and to improve the reliability of the default API configuration.

It is recommended that all users update their API to version 1.8 using either the manual or automated API installation tools, or users running version 1.4 or above may be able to take advantage of the API upgrade tool.

New Features & Changes
  • $api_ip_authenticate configuration option has been added which allows for the IP authentication processes to be disabled on server's which are unable to detect the correct visitor IP address.
  • The API will no longer remove '.htaccess' files created in the API directory if the $api_create_htaccess configuration option is disabled and therefore custom '.htaccess' files may now be placed in the API directory unless this option is enabled.
  • The API will no longer use the HTTPS protocol to connect to the systems unless the $api_myrepono_https configuration option is enabled. We recommend enabling this option whenever possible.
  • The file listings and directory filesize calculations which are generated for display through the 'Domains' -> 'Files' section have been updated to improve compatibility.
  • The default API configuration has been updated to improve the reliability for new users.

For detailed information regarding the configuration options offered by version 1.8 of the API, please refer to the API Configuration & Customisation documentation.

myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin

Users of the myRepono WordPress Backup Plugin can proceed to the 'myRepono' -> 'Plugin' section of their WordPress administration panel and use the 'Re-Install myRepono API' option to install version 1.8 of the myRepono API.
