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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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


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.

This is what I want. Few days ago I asked this in vbulletin.com, and they let me know vbulletin 4 has been removed this nice feature that I use all the time. I gotta install this for my forum. I hope it work fine. Thank you so much Paul.

Update: It works perfectly with 4.0.2. My database backup less then 16 seconds.

hi...why you just create that backup folder inside your root folder like inside public_html folder same as mine and this folder must be 777
then add this...

././AUTO-BACKUPS/

to your Acp > vb options > vBulletin Automatic Backup > Backups Path

hope this will solve your problem...if not ask more till the developer got mad and reply to you....

LOL



best regards dude...

Pretty sure Ive mentioned this before - but you dont need 2 lots of ./ if your are going to use a folder in that location then ./foldername is all you need.

How about auto deleting old backups? Other if the hack is sets every day backup the files in the backup folder will be use a lot of space if not manual deleted.

In example set auto delete backups before 6 days.
