Question What is the Best Way to Backup your Vbulletin database

Hello everyone,


I know this is a very common question ( please forgive the redundancy) but I am fairly new to the vbulletin community and I have read the tutorials about backing up databases from either vbulletin itself or through myPHP.


Can someone tell me the difference? I have had two crashes and like amny of you lost thousands of thread because I was not backing up the correct way. Is there an advantage to backing up one way opposed to another. I certainly want to make sure I am doing it the correct way.

Sadly, I do not have SSH enabled on my site.


Again I apologize to the community for asking this common question but I just want to feel safe knowing I am backing up my forum the best possible way.


Thank you so much in advance,


Dave

I would not use the built in backmanager, you'll likely get errors when trying to import it.
The best way is via the phpmyadmin
I use a hack over at www.vbhackers.com to make daily backups that are automatically emailed to me.
