vB Database Backup Pro (Lite) for vb 3.6
Mod Version: 2.12, by Paul M (Member) Paul M is offline

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (41 votes - 4.66 average) Installs: 582
Released: 18 Sep 2006 Last Update: 10 Oct 2006 Downloads: 3334
Not Supported Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

This modification is no longer available or supported.

When vb 3.5 first came out I was using this backup system on my vb 3.0 - and having nothing better to use - I converted it to work on vb 3.5 (here) and since then I have cut it down and adapted it for vb 3.6.

The original version was by Trigunflame and the rights to the code were bought by Zoints (D.Chapman) in January. A while ago David gave me permission to release my adaption, but until now I haven't got round to it. Trigunflame did mention a few months ago he was working on a new version, but nothing ever appeared.

I have stripped out much of the extra stuff that I do not use (or indeed, could not get to work). This is a simple (lite) version that does a php based dump of your database either as one file, or one file per table. It's been in use on our forum since the day 3.6 was installed.

Notes:
* I will not add anything new to this, or spend vast amounts of time supporting it.
* This is a Lite version to allow people to use the basic 3.0 backup functionality on 3.6.


History:

v2.10 : First internal version.
v2.11 : Bug fixes, some code changes.
v2.12 : Initial Public Release.

Installed, running beautifully on 3.6.8 RL2. I actually made my own scheduled task, as I didn't realise the hack had already made one, but it's all working great. Thanks very much!

An error occured during the MySQL backup. Details (Could not open Destination SQL file for writing.)
in the mysqlbackupconfig file I used the /backups/ directory, I know this one exists on the server at the root level and I have insured it's 777, seems I am close,,,but still not working...

any further ideas are appreciated...

When you get the time..

Thanks

I have a dumb question, maybe already been posted before. But what's the difference between this hack and the original backup that ships with vB by default?

I cannot help with individual security issues on servers. Your web server does not have permission to write to that folder. Speak to your host.

Hi

I have a vbulletin forum that was converted from a phpBB forum. After the conversion the attachment database database table was much larger than the original and now my database has 1,8GB. I need to make a backup, I have tried with this mod, but I got this error

How can you check this has done a complete backup? I know my Db is 400+mb as we moved recently, but the backup is only listed as 295mb.
