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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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

v4.1.0 : 04-Dec-2010 : Updated for vBulletin 4.1.0.

Your php probably has other restrictions in place.

Wow. I upgrade, run this... and my dbase is now more than twice the size it was before the upgrade. Whooooo. That's large.

This is one of the hacks that I refuse to upgrade until I see it... Thanks Paul.

Excellent mod Paul. Works flawlessly. Is there anyway to make the mod so I can delete backup files after say 5 backups? So there are never more than 5 at a given time. If not, that's fine, I'll just log in from time to time and delete them. Thanks again!!

Nevermind my question. Searched through and found this. Exactly what I needed. You da man!

My backup use to take about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. The last 4 or 5 days they've taken 5-6 minutes.

Any explanation for this? Is it the hack/mod or my server/my site.

And what do I need to do?

Thanks!!

There is no way I can possibly know whats happening on your server.

If its working then you dont need to do anything.

There are no changes in the mod between v4.0.1 and v4.1.0 of the mod that would cause that - either you are using a different path to before, or something has changed on your server.

when I do a backup manually I get the Backup Error : Could not write to destination file even though my backup directory is 777 and the path is correct. I also get a 1kb file placed in the backup directory after doing a manual backup. A file being placed there tells me my path is correct and it is writable.

So whats going on? What am I doing wrong?

Sorry, I have no idea. I cannot comment on the setup [and oddities] of individual servers.

Can you give me any ideas on what would cause that at server level?
