vBulletin Cron Based Database Backup
Mod Version: 4.2.0.2, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline
Developer Last Online: Jan 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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

Advise not to use this product if you have a forum that goes from 1GB database, I recommend you look for something like mysqldump

Any particular reason? Mine is 3.5GB and it works ok. It compresses to a 600MB .gz
I haven't tried restoring it for a while, but it worked a while back ok.

Only just noticed this, which is complete rubbish.
My forum has been over 1GB for years, and happily using this for years.

(In fact, if you had bothered to check, it actually has an option to use mysqldump, rather than the php based dump routine, built in).

Hi,
What is the difference between php and mysql? which one is recommended to use, to can restore in the future with "bigdump"
Because, with "var $DTYPE = 'php';"all its OK.
But when I confgure it to "mysql" , I got this error and the backup folder is empty:

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

Thanks
4.2.3 PL2

'mysql' will attempt to use mysqldump, which in your case looks like it wont work, so just stick to using 'php'.

I'm off topic, but I found also that notifications, via emails, for new replays, arrives 2 hours later, It's a server bug ?

If you manually installed the files, and manually added the cron job, I think it probably would.

However, the product would not install using the normal ACP method.
