Restoration: information about disabling the password protection. If you inadvertently applied an ANGIE password during backup, e.g. because your browser or password manager automatically filled one for you without you noticing it, you may find yourself in the unfortunate position of looking at a locked restoration script when trying to restore your site. Even though we do document what to do in this case it would appear that almost nobody thinks to read the documentation. So, we added the documentation in ANGIE itself. The lock screen will tell you which file you need to remove by (S)FTP or through your hosting control panel to disable the password protection.
Remove ROW_FORMAT during backup and restoration. InnoDB tables may include a ROW_FORMAT specifier which tells MySQL which internal data format to use for InnoDB table data. The internal row format has repercussions in how big each field in a table can be and how big all fields in a table combined can be. When restoring a site from or to an older MySQL version than the one you backed up from the inclusion of the ROW_FORMAT specifier may make it impossible to restore your site. Akeeba Backup now removes it to let you more easily restore a site using InnoDB tables across different MySQL server versions.
