when I try to run a restore from a remote source I get:

[ERROR ] Could not start backup; Error 405: Invalid method

After investigating I found what looks to me like a Bug in Engine/Job/Validator.php:162 and following:

The check for $works must be at the end. Currently it is at the start of the loop, so $verb and $format are already incremented leading to the wrong verb/format beeing stored.

I attached a patch, hoping this is usefull for you.

With this fix I was able to create a remote backup.

Thanks for your efforts and kind regards



2. try to upload the patch - this time inside a zip.

Please try using the latest development version. The code has already been thoroughly refactored. The version you are using has not much to do with the code base we're working on right now.
