Fixed a show-stopper issue restoring WordPress sites. There are some servers which prevent creating two or more connections to the same database. On these servers the restoration of a WordPress site would fail at the data replacement step. This happened due to two different bugs in the restoration script, both marked as high priority because they would cause the restoration to fail on the (quite rare) affected servers.
Bug fixes. We have addressed several issues. Please consult the CHANGELOG.
Support for PHP 5.3 has been discontinued. PHP 5.3 has been end of life since August 2014 and widely considered a security risk, unfit for production sites. Our software requires PHP 5.4 or later and is compatible with PHP 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2. We currently offer preliminary support for PHP 7.3 which at the time of this writing is still in Release Candidate (testing) phase. We strongly recommend using PHP 5.6 or 7.2.
We'd like to remind you that the PHP version compatibility refers to our software. It is possible that the software you are using for your site does not support all of these PHP versions. You are responsible for ensuring compatibility of the server you are restoring to with the software of your site, including lower and upper limits of PHP and MySQL versions.
HEADS UP! We will be dropping support for PHP 5.4, 5.5 and 7.0 starting January 2019. The software might run on these obsolete versions of PHP but we will be no longer officially supporting them. Any issues which can only be reproduced on non-supported PHP versions will not be treated as bugs and won't be fixed.
