After upgrading to 3.4, the manual backup link is missing (Administration > Course administration > Backup). Any ideas why and how it can fixed?
Apologies, I'm new to administrating Moodle. I'm following the docs here. On my installation there isn't a Backup option in Courses (see screen cap above)
Also, backup is missing under the gear menu as you described.
I getting the feeling I'm in the wrong area but for the life of me I cannot find Course Administration
I finally figured this out, completely user error.
Thanks for trying to help me.
