I've just upgraded from Akeeba backup core to Professional 6.6.1. There are two encryption options that I see: 1) in the global options there is an encryption yes/no option or 2) JPS archive with encryption.
Which is the better choice here?
As I understand 1), it puts a key in the database and in a file on the server, and may not work if transferring to a new server. 2) appears to just be an encryption of the archive file, stored in the file header, like an encrypted zip file.
I may be wrong about this, so please correct/ clarify if needed!
Would #2 be the safer and more compatible option in that it a) may transfer between servers better and b) may not be compromised if an attacker has access to the server's files (in which case one would be hosed anyway, of course).
Thank you for any clarification / suggestions --- and thank you for a great product!
