As a user of ZA for about 4 years I'm wondering if anyone has ever had any luck restoring security settings from a backup .xml file, or even managed to upgrade their installation without losing all the rules, customized site permissions
etc. laboriously built up over a period of months.
I sure haven't, not once. And needless to say, tech support has never shown any serious interest in the problem so now I just accept as a matter of course that I'm going to start over again from scratch.
I'd be better off with a utility that would print out a summary of my settings without the overhead of the .xml packaging, so that I could enter them again manually.
Just curious to know if I'm in the minority for whom this doesn't work, or whether Backup/Restore and Upgrade
is collectively some kind of cruel hoax.
