This is a cut down version based on a backup system written by Trigunflame for vb 3.0. It is a simple vBulletin cron trigged php system that does a dump of your database - either as one complete file, or as one file per table. Especially useful now that IB removed the old ACP backup option in vBulletin 4. Files can be (G)Zipped to save space.

All the options are located in the ACP in vBulletin Options >> vBulletin Automatic Backup


Notes:



To install, download and unzip the files, and follow the instructions in the text file.

Impossible to say without knowing where your forum files are in relation to it.

Simple, direct, works as advertised.

I kinda doubted that this was going to do what I want nor work as I wanted.

Just say that my doubts were unfounded.

It exceeded my expectations and worked flawlessly.

Don't know why I had any doubts, as Paul M makes great plug-ins.

It's simple, but is something that all vBulletin admins should have installed.

Just a suggestion for everyone....

If at all possible, do NOT put the backups into a folder in your main HTML folder as that would make them by default readable by anyone.

You should at least password protect the folder as the SQL backups do contain personal information that should be secured.

If at all possible, I recommend having the backups go into a folder in your user or home directory that you can access via FTP, but not via HTTP.

Fortunately, this mod will let you choose exactly where you want it to write the backup.

K so it appears to be making a backup by the scheduled time.

Just one question, I have a suite version so I was wondering, although it probably doesnt matter if its suite or forum or maybe it does, dont know....

Does it make a backup of the full mysql database that the site uses or just like a portion like the forums only or something?
