This module allows you to take snapshots of your site. It turns a Drupal installation into a sandbox that you can use to:
- Try out and test new modules, configuration, etc.
- Set up a public demonstration site for a contributed module or theme.
- Develop and test update and upgrade paths.
Whenever you need to reset your site to the state of a saved snapshot a click of your mouse will do so.
With cron enabled, a site can be automatically reset to a chosen snapshot in a definable interval.
- See README.txt contained in the download.
Public demo sites
- The bundled, optional Demo Reset module allows to setup a public demo site.
- Foreigners can play in your sandbox.
- Setup cron to automatically reset the site periodically.
- D6 only: If your web host does not support a real crontab, you may use Poormanscron. (D7 has this built-in.)
- Use Demonstration Site Install Profile to use snapshots to setup a Drupal site.
- Backup/archive of uploaded files and restore upon reset. To allow sandboxes for file related modules.
- Journal module integration to show recent changes in snapshots.
- Demo Reset security improvements to allow to demonstrate administrative functionalities more easily.
