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.

Hi Paul or whoever can help me.
I have a problem, but the hack starts but when it comes to the table postindex stops.
I tried to turn up the block size and later increased to 600 000 but always the result is the same, it stops at postindex.

I can do to solve this?

Regards

Edit:

I've uploaded to 2000000 rows and continues to give the same result.

Almost certainly some kind of server timeout.

Backups are just textfiles, the size simply depends on what is included, and how.

After installing the new version, it says "Templates Merged Successfully". Is it supposed to say that?

Thats a message from the vb product installation system, somewhat bizarre as this actually has no templates.

Exactly what I thought but it did it both times I overwrote it. I did it a second time to make sure I was seeing what I was seeing. It must have something to do with 4.0.4 as I didn't notice it on the first install of this mod with 4.0.3.

Hi,
I have 4.0.4 and use UTF8.
My forums language id Arabic.

Attached is a screen shot of the database that was generated by "vBulletin Cron Based Database Backup"

When I take the backup via phpmyadmin, the text does not look funny like that!

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Emmm, when I restored it via phpmyadmin it looks fine!
Not sure how that is possible, but it worked.
Wow, that's great. Thanks.

This looks nice but where exactly do I upload the files. The install instructions only say "upload to the server." Though I am unsure where in the vbulltin files to upload it.
