I have UNITE in a folder called "unite" parallel to the public_html folder and restoring a site into the public_html folder.
A couple of issues,
1) The restoration only runs if I set permissions to the configuration.php to 644, which are not the ideal permissions if I understand correctly. I think they should be 444. I would like to run it without overwriting the configuration file, since that does not change anyway.
2) The most important issue is that the process deletes the .htaccess file and does not replace it upon completion. I get success emails, but when I go to the website, the homepage looks fine, but if I click on any links, they are all broken because the .htaccess file enables the URL rewrite and it is no longer there. So I had to reupload a local copy.
Based on the response to my last ticket, I was advised to remove "stealth" from the list of jobs in the 01_default.ini file. I did that, and I also removed configupdate. The process ran and sent an email saying it was successful but again, the .htaccess file was no longer there.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
