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.

Haha you do have a point. I suspect I've learned to be careful the hardway. That is by blowing stuff up.

When I run it, it keeps stopping at about the 7,200,000 block or 7,300,000 block of the postindex table. The table has about 8,000,000 records.

I enabled Block Processing and Block Size of 100,000. No error messages. It just stops.

Tried it with both Combine Files on and off. And also with block size at 50,000.

Any ideas what could be wrong?

I don't do much on the server so I have lost my knowledge regarding file permissions.

What permissions should I give to my backup directory?

Thanks.

That really depends on what user your webserver is using. In most cases you will need 777.

Nope, but when a script just stops, thats usually a timeout somewhere.

I've been hearing that it's necessary (or at least advisable) to close your forum before doing a database backup. Is that true?

If so, should the forum be closed when this script runs?

Two things I am not sure about here
1. When setting it up the backup folder setting just looks like this ../../backups/ so now I created a folder in my root called "backups", is this correct?
2. In the doc it tell me to " Alter the timing of the cron job to suit." where do I find this?

1. "../../" just means "up two levels", so if your forum is located in /var/www/html/forums/ then ../../backups refers to /var/www/backups/

2. vBulletin scheduled tasks (in the ACP).

Have this installed and working, but just a quick question.

What's the recommended setting for this? Is sticking with all the default options fine?
