This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (160 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 1434
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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

No it didnt.

Its not possible for this to break anything, since it doesnt change anything. It certainly cannot delete tables.You need to look elsewhere.

When Updating this do I need to reupload all files or just overwrite the XML?

Not sure what this means but I keep getting this error:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7249956 bytes)

I am on shared hosting with Godaddy on a windows box.

Mauro-

It is likely you have attachments and avatars set to be saved in the file system- this mod only backs up the database. You need to worry about coping files separately.

Admin CP -> Attachments -> Attachment Storage Type
and
Admin CP -> Avatars -> User Picture Storage Type

These places will tell you where your attachments and avatars are stored.

Assuming you have also put the filesystem into localhost..... Don't panic. When restoring the forum locally you need to specify the local location for the attachments etc. It's a hidden menu.

To get things working:
Update local path in /includes/config.php
Update email options settings in vbulletin admin panel to reference new url (along with all the other settings)
I had my attachments stored in the filesystem and in vbulletin, in a location specified as a crazy full server path which can only be changed by switching to debug mode: $config['Misc']['debug'] = 1; <<by adding that to the 2nd line of the config.php). Then a hidden item in the admin panel's option menu appears for "untouchables" (2nd on the list!) where the path can be changed (remembering to remove the debug mode line afterwards from config.php).

Any idea what we should tell our host about this error? I have this mod installed on 2 forums and a test forum.

all stopped working on aug 30th 2012.....my host dont seem to think its them..all files on my side have not changed and even reinstalled the mod...still no gzip.


Host just emailed back and said everything fine on the server

The gzip is installed on the server and working fine. Please have a look:

======================================
[email protected] [~]# which gzip
/bin/gzip

[email protected] [~]# gzip -V
gzip 1.3.5
nothing has changed on my end.......time to find a new host I guess
