Yeah, I already started a spreadsheet a while back, as you had suggested to me. 630? Man, that is A LOT of time-consuming work if you need to reinstall! I know that there are probably a lot of phrases and such that I should edit, because they are written in poor English, for reasons we both understand. But, I'll tell you, just making the time to do it, and the monotony of it all. I dislike monotonous, repetitive, tedious tasks. I can only handle so much before I have to stop before my brain fries or my patience runs out.

But as far as all of those settings are concerned, while I have saved some text files with settings listed in them, what I mainly do are mySQL backups just about every day if I remember to do them. And, I keep multiple copies of my mySQL backups: on the server machine itself, on two backup drives connected to the server machine, on my work machine, and on two backup drives connected to my work machine. I just don't like to take chances. And soon I will be getting better quality line voltage regulators, and two UPS systems, one for each iMac.

John, while I do have a macOS "Numbers" file -- Numbers is the macOS equivalent of an Excel spreadsheet -- where I  store phrases changes, when it comes to solutions like this one which often involve more than one step, I have a folder called "phpFox How To's" where I store BBEdit text files. Each text file contains step-by-step instructions for how to perform a particular task, or achieve a particular objective. The name of each of these text files begins with "How to" and is followed by a brief description of what the instructions contained therein will do. It is a simple, straightforward, easy system which helps me to remember how to do certain things.

I'm sorry, but what exactly is a PWA?

My iPhone and Android phone apps are a vital part of my phpFox site, the reason being that according to Google's statistics, close to 80% of traffic coming to my main website is from people using mobile devices, and only about 20% comes from people using desktop and laptop computers. What a huge difference compared to even ten years ago.
