vBulletin Cron Based Database Backup

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 4.2.x Rating: (160 votes - 4.89 average) Installs: 1436
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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

Hey Paul, probably not that hard to add pigz as alternative to gzip compression ? pigz parallel version of gzip up to 33x times faster than gzip http://vbtechsupport.com/2094/

hard to say right now, but whm/cpanel are looking into replacing all there backup functions using gzip and switching to pigz http://forums.cpanel.net/f145/faster...-a-242831.html, so imagine every cpanel/whm based server online with pigz support in future. I'd say quite a few will have pigz eventually

I hadn't heard of it, but it's on the RHL/Centos Repoforge repository, so anyone that has server access should be able to install it safely.

Prod me again when cpanel start using it.

In the meantime, I presume you can simply edit the command in the code from gzip to pigz if so desired.

Hey, Is any-one used this mod with 4.2PL2 version?? Also as I notice a lot of members used cpanel and apache instead of nginx and ispconfig. Can this affect the whole mod as a part of vbulletin ?? Thank you!!
