It will remain available for download and use, but the thread is no longer monitored.

Note: Because I did not write the original version, but rather have modified & adapted it, support of this modification may be limited

When vb 3.5 first came out I was using this backup system on my vb 3.0 - and having nothing better to use - I converted it to work on vb 3.5 (here) and since then I have cut it down and adapted it for vb 3.6.

The original version was by Trigunflame and the rights to the code were bought by Zoints (D.Chapman) in January. A while ago David gave me permission to release my adaption, but until now I haven't got round to it. Trigunflame did mention a few months ago he was working on a new version, but nothing ever appeared.

I have stripped out much of the extra stuff that I do not use (or indeed, could not get to work). This is a simple (lite) version that does a php based dump of your database either as one file, or one file per table. It's been in use on our forum since the day 3.6 was installed.

Notes:
* I will not add anything new to this, or spend vast amounts of time supporting it.
* This is a Lite version to allow people to use the basic 3.0 backup functionality on 3.6.


History:

v2.10 : First internal version.
v2.11 : Bug fixes, some code changes.
v2.12 : Initial Public Release.

There is nothing I can really tell you. Our post table is fractionally under 500MB and it backs up in just over 4 minutes. I can't see any reason you could not backup much larger tables. I can think your problem is server related, maybe your host can help you.

Edit: Are you running in safe mode, or on windows (IIS), they both can affect the timeout.

Also, manually run the backup from the cron manager and see if you get a timeout error.

Ditto same, no safe and linux - the only one thing I could suspect is the hosting - they may have set a short execution time for PHP (?)

The manual backup also causes the same issue - it's something other than the software, but damn frustrating.

Cheers,

Jason

Go to your Scheduled Task Manager in the ACP and run the cron job.

you must give full path for backup folder in mysqlbackupconfig.php.
like this /home/user/public_html/forum/databasebackup. after you give a permission mode 777 to this folder. After you can take backup.

Well you haven't got it right - that is a simple permissions error, your web server does not have write permissions to the folder you have pointed the backups at.

Folder Permissions - Look back a few posts (to post #55).

Not really, it works fine if the server allows it to run. About the only thing I can change is to reset the timeout at the start of each table - but tbh, that's unlikely to make any difference as it seems as though your host has somehow set php to ignore the directive.

Nope, it's a permissions error, only you (or your host) can fix them.
