vBulletin Cron Based Database Backup
Mod Version: 4.2.0.2, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (160 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 1437
Released: 28 Dec 2009 Last Update: 26 Nov 2013 Downloads: 7175
Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files Translations  

As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.

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

To install, download and unzip the files, and follow the instructions in the text file.


History:

v4.0.1 : 28-Dec-2009 : Initial release for vb 4.0.0 Gold.
v4.0.2 : 29-Dec-2009 : Added ability to block process larger tables.

Love your products though, Paul *uninstalled*

seems to stop

thanks for the mod
I'm on hostgator
when I try to perform a full backup, all seems ok
but it stops to
.....
.....
Processing postindex (2241365)


nothing below

in the backup directory, I can see a 220 megs sql file

is it a full good backup ? I don't know... I think i should get a confirmation message ( like backup is ok ) ?

is there something I should modify ?

Check your permissions so that apache can write to the folder (and check that path, three dots seems wrong to me).

Hi!

I have this error:
Warning: include_once([path]/./includes/cron/cronbackup.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/admincp/cronadmin.php on line 113

Warning: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening '[path]/./includes/cron/cronbackup.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in [path]/admincp/cronadmin.php on line 113
What I do wrong?

Regards
kjpp

Looks like a nice mod but what is the advantage of using this over a Cron in CPanel?

You have not uploaded all the files to the correct place, it cannot find cronbackup.php

How you do backups is mostly personal choice, if you prefer to use cpanel then do so
