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: 1435
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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.

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.

Thanks!

../ means up one level.

So if your forum is in /domain/public_html/forum, it will be at /domain/backups

Backup Error : Could not write to destination file ( ../../backups/2012-01-04/Forum-2012-01-04-Vb4_access.sql )

Sorry paul, I still cant get it to work, /backups is at the same level as /public_html

permissions are set at 777 also.

again sorry....but all I have to do is put a backups directory at the same level as my public_html right?

Possibly you have php open_basdir restrictions in place - esp if you are using Plesk.

Did you create the folder ?

If so, fix the permissions on the server so it can write to the folder.

what should be the permission for the backup folder?
And can it be outside of the "public_html" folder?

EDIT:
(going to kind of answer myself a little bit...)
1) The backup folder can be placed outside the "public_html" folder
2) I currently have set the permission to 755 for the backup folder...
Just wondering if it can/should be lowered to be a little bit more secure...
