Hm.. I'm not extremely familiar with cron jobs, but from what I understand..

You're able to set up a cron job to do a database backup? And with this mod, turn vB off at the same time as the backup? Does it automatically detect when the backup is finished and come back online, or would you have to set it to go offline for an hour?

Thanks,

Looking at the code it does not automatically detect when the backup is finished, you would have to set the open cron to run X amount of time after the backup.

Yes, you should make the cronjob turn off the board just before your backup is set to take place and then the 2nd cronjob to be when you believe the backup will be finished by.
