Hi.

Is it possible to disable the backup of GEDCOM files when performing an automatic upgrade? My GEDCOM file is so large that automatic upgrade fails every time and I have no control over PHP settings etc.

Cheers,

RottenSod.

When I initially wrote the automatic upgrade code, I was worried that a bug could potentially corrupt/destroy somebody's data.

The backup files are created as my insurance policy. If there was a problem, I would be able to help you recover your data.

But this has never been needed. So I guess we can make them optional.

Perhaps you could create an entry on the github issue tracker? Thanks.

I felt obliged to suggest to add an option to create database exports, too. Hope this doesn't go too far.
