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: 1438
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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

guys I need a little help here.. I feel kinda stupid for asking but vbulletin and every thing it includes is new to me.. anyway, i have installed "Cron Based Database Backup". and I find the app in settings->options->vBulletin Automatic Backup in admincp. but what should I put in "Backups Path"? and where should I make the folder?? and what is an "relative path"? and setting the backups folder to 777 is not the brightest idea is it?

Setting the folder to 777 is normally required to allow apache write access. The location is down to you, but outside of your web folder is generally best.

Hey I'm getting this error:
Backup Error : Could not write to destination file ( http://(website).com/backups/2010-01...-06-Access.sql )
I set the folder to be 777 and also tried this with various relative paths and keep getting the same error. Can someone tell me what settings I need to check? I'm running a dedicated VPS on Plesk. I'm a vB and Apache noob and don't know anything about server permissions. Thanks

The path you have entered is completely invalid, you appear to have put in a web page address.

Eeek, so it does - those pids shouldnt be there, removed and re-uploaded.

You can just re-import the Member Tracking XML and it should be fine.

I don't quiet understand how to use this mod, from my understanding, does it do only a mysql database backup or a file directory backup as well? What exactly does it do?

And how do I set it to do a backup every 1 week?

And finally... my backups folder is at www.brotherhoodofgamers.com/backups so the directory should be : ../backups/ yes?

in my FTP it shows up as /public_html/backups/

Please let me know, thanks.

I decided to upgrade to 4.0.1 and reinstall this. Works fine now
However, it stated it "Processed Database in -9934.818 seconds"
