The Pre Flight Check

To ensure the BoldGrid Backup Plugin will run on your web server, we include a Pre Flight Check that analyzes your hosting environment, and provides a detailed report about its configuration. This includes general tests, the backup directory and permissions, available compression libraries and cron availability. If your host has an issue with failing one of these checks, this will provide information about what can be done to resolve the problem.

Now that you have a little more information about the BoldGrid Backup plugin, next you may want to run your first backup or learn more about configuring automatic updates.
