After upgrading to 3.4, the manual backup link is missing (Administration > Course administration > Backup). Any ideas why and how it can fixed?
You can create a backup of any course by going into the course then clicking the backup link either in the gear menu or the Administration block (depending upon the theme). I'm not sure what you mean by a manual backup link in the site administration?
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.
But the screen shot is of the admin settings not the course settings. Please go to the course, and look at the administration menu within the course. Post screenshot.
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.
