ANGIE for Miscellaneous PHP Applications

These are the specific instructions for the ANGIE for Miscellaneous PHP Applications site restoration script which is supposed to be used when backing up sites which are not based on a content management system or script supported by a specific ANGIE installer. Only the pages specific to this script are described here. For the common instructions among all ANGIE installers please consult the relevant section.

First page

If you are restoring to a different site or a server with a different PHP version than the one you backed up from you will see warnings in yellow background at the top of the page. Please note that the existence of these warnings doesn't mean that the restoration won't work. They are there to warn you to the fact that your restored site may or may not work in the new server because the server configuration may be different and some extension may not be compatible with it. It's the kind of information that is impossible to know before finishing the restoration.


Everything you see in the pre-installation check and recommended settings are NOT the minimum requirements or recommendations for the site script you are restoring. These are the minimum requirements and recommended settings for ANGIE itself. It is possible that some of the features detected as missing or suboptimal are actually not used at all by your site's script.

Please keep that in mind that before posting a support request in the spirit of "I have backed up a site running WhateverScript 2.0 and when I try to restore it ANGIE complains about missing gzip compression which WhateverScript isn't even using". It's not a bug, it's not an issue and can't be "fixed" unless we add an installer for your specific script (which is unlikely if we have not announced plans to do so). If you are using a specially supported script such as Joomla! please use the specific ANGIE installer for that script.

If any of the settings under the Pre-installation check header is red, most probably the restoration will fail. Several users have reported that even when the MB language is default is set to No your site does get restored. Take this reported success with a grain of salt, as we do understand the problems caused by this sever setting. If you choose to continue the restoration it is at your own risk. Please note that if any of these settings is shown in red you have to ask your host for support. Please do not ask us for support; we are not your host and we cannot change your server's configuration.

Recommended settings contains a series of optional settings and their recommended values. If any of those values is in orange, your site will be restored and will most likely work without a problem. Some restoration features (e.g. using FTP) might not work.
