Just to share a little bad experience from this morning.
Was fiddling on my server to make another script work properly and had to edit php.ini. Due some test the server ran a few seconds without the php.ini files. This was enough to blow up the timezone of my self hosted emoncms
All the graphs showed errors all over but that came back to normal once the php.ini file was re activated except that … saw it only half an hour later … my feeds didn’t update anymore
All the settings were reset to zero and thus the script couldn’t calculate timestamp …
Just setting back things correctly solved the case for me.
Still it is a bit weird that the settings rely so hard on server settings, can’t the settings be rather hard saved ??? Can imagine that with some heavy server updates or apache upgrades these settings just go blank … -> loss of data
