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.

Having issues:

An error occured during the MySQL backup. Details (Could not open Destination SQL file for writing.)

I've tried every possible directory combination I can think of, but no dice. I've CHMOD'd and also still had no luck. Any ideas?

Forum files are in public_html/website/. I've tried ../backups/, ../../backups/, etc. All of them to no avail.

TIA for help.

Have you actually created the backup directory you are trying to use ?

Alright I got everything installed but when I click Run Now I get this error:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I know it is not a good location for the file but I am just testing it. I also made that folder writable so I don't know what's going on.
Any suggestions?

Just out of curiosity, is it a good idea to "Lock Tables" when doing the backup?
I seem to remember we had that enabled on the old v3.x one.

It depends, it means no tables can be updated while the backup is running, which is ideal - however, it also means your forum will not function until the backup has completed.

Yes thanks Paul. I'd noticed that happen on the older version.
No biggie, as the task is in the early hours, take just a few seconds and the notice is displayed.
That's cool

If you modify the code then I expect it would be possible.

Paul; Any chance of you designing this mod with an option to compress the sql files with gzip to save some server space?
