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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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

Strange. A "full-" backup from 22.5.2010 has 229 MB, from 23.5.2010 has about 200 KB???????

200k is clearly wrong.

That would happen to me occasionally in 3.8.; not with this product. So I just restarted the backup then I got the full download.

it will run auto....if not....just change something else....hope it works for you....

I left the setting at the default and made the backups directory in the same folder that contains public_html, not in the public_html folder. Safest place for it.

Processed Database in 136.093 seconds


Just 1 thing, so strange I tried to setup the backup outside the http folder, but everytime I got a couldn't write error, however that folder was 777... Strange, any idea on this. ?

For example, I want the backups to be in /home/forum/backup/daily/

And the permissions are chmod 777 for the daily folder, but still problems writing...

Thanks.

Most likely you have open_basdir restrictions in place, esp if you use Plesk.

Thank you Paul, especially your patience to all of us.

I was using this prior to 4.0 but after reinstalling the new version after 4.0 it was only creating directories, but no files. It was due to having Repair Tables checked, so after taking care of that then enabling block processing, I'm up and running again.

Great product.

Nope. This cannot do that, its purely backup.

You can manually run it at any time in the scheduled task manager - just like any other vb cron job. I dont understand the rest of your post.
