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.

Unless your database is small I would imagine Hostgator will always be a problem - because of their stupid timout settings.

Should I delete the 3.x version of this and then install the new one for my 4.0.1 board?

Please advise.

Yes. Delete the 3.x files and replace them with these, then import the product - it should delete the old product for you.

Thanks. Marked as Installed.

I just left the default settings in the AdminCP. It worked well for me before with vB 3.x series. I'll find out soon if I made the right decision.

You have a corrupt xml file, I suggest you download and unzip it again.

not having any good luck.. my host seems to be killing the backup attempt before i can finish... block processing doesn't seem to do anything to help it, altho turning off the combine files feature allowed it to about double the ammount of tables it could backup before it stopped.

Uninstalled for now... I just wish there was a way to set it to backup say half the tables then take a 1 min rest and then backup the rest cause that would probibly avoid this problem but hey no worries, thanks for the mod tho
