Multisite usage: restore single subsite only?

Hi,

1) as the plugin is network activated only, we'd like to know is we can restore a single subsite of given network, rather than all sites within the multisite.

2) when stored locally in the media folder, how can we make sure that the backup won't be accessed publicly?

thanks!

    Hi M.

    I hope you had a wonderful day.

    > Yes. You can restore a single subsite of given network rather than all sites within the multisite. On a multisite install, Snapshot works on a site by site basis. You back up each site independently and then you also restore on a site by site basis, rather than one large backup for the whole network.

    2) when stored locally in the media folder, how can we make sure that the backup won't be accessed publicly?
    If you are concerned about public accessibility, first thing is users are not supposed to know the *exact* file name to access. If they go to "http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-content/uploads/snapshots", they are not supposed to see the list of files inside that directory.

    If you wanna make it 100% protected, you can use our Membership 2 Pro plugin. After installing and activating Membership, you can enable "Media Protection" add-on and inside that add-on, you will get option to protect each media file inside your media content directory. Check attached screenshots for reference.

    You can attempt to set the snapshot folder to a directory outside of your web site. This may not be available depending on your hosting configuration. Check with your hosting provider. If you change the folder to be outside of your web site you may not be able to access the archive via this plugin. You will need to use FTP or some other solution provided by your hosting provider.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
