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: 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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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.
v4.0.3 : 27-Jun-2010 : Added Gzip option.

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

v4.1.7.0 : 16-Oct-2011 : Updated for vBulletin 4.1.7.

v4.2.0.0 : 24-May-2012 : Updated for vBulletin 4.2.0.
v4.2.0.1 : 17-Mar-2013 : Removed vboptions from backup call..

I have a few question regarding this backup. I hope you can answer.

1) Do I have to turn off my site to run this backup?

2) While running backup, does it affect the site performance (slow)?

Thanks

It's a cron job so just schedule it to run at the slowest time of the day for your site. A backup is a lot more important than worrying about slowing your site for few seconds or minutes at an off-peak time.

There is no 4.0.x version available.

Anyone running 4.0.x should really update to at least 4.1.x

A vB4 licence covers all releases, be they 4.0, 4.1 or 4.2, no money is required.

Yes 4.x.x upgrades are covered by the licence. You only have to pay for upgrade if you move to v5.

Your web server doesnt have permission to write the files.
