Good morning

Restore backups to a site with a large database and hundreds of thousands of records, restoring the database via Angie fails by reporting countless MySQL DUPLICATE KEY errors.

We noticed that this happens in tables where there is no self-incrementing primary key but a multiple key (in my case composed of three columns).

This prevents us from using Akeeba Solo Pro to backup our PHP application while keeping our database unchanged.

What are we doing wrong?
