Mysqli & the Fuel backup module
I've just realised that CI's dbutil class isn't compatible with the mysqli driver, which in turn makes the Backup module ineffective.
Is there a workaround? I thought of using parallel db configs where everything but the backup module use mysqli but even so I get deprecation messages from PHP about using the mysql driver. Even if this worked, I'm not sure if it's a valid solution.
