I have been reviewing Akeeba solo documentation and I have noticed the warning about PrestaShop latest releases.
I manage several PrestaShop sites and I'm a bit involved in this CMS too and I would like to know a bit more about the issues.
I understand that you stopped offering Restoration scripts due to the changes in latest releases, but Akeeba Solo as generic script backup solution can work pretty well for Akeeba Solo from my point of view.
From my experience, for most 1.7 shops, just replacing urls in database and settings the parameters file, you are good to go. For others you probably need to clean /var/cache, but that's all.
I'm probably missing something, so can you please give me some details of the chanllenges and issues you faced in 1.7?
Please let me stress the fact that I'm not requesting you support PrestaShop in Akeeba Solo (though I would love to), but just want to know a bit more about the issues you faced as I really want to use Akeeba Solo to backup my PrestaShop installations.
