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As of 23 Nov 2017 this modification has been withdrawn.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

v4.0.1 : 28-Dec-2009 : Initial release for vb 4.0.0 Gold.

I have it set up like this:

vb4_db_backups
public_html

Then you can use what I posted earlier but make sure the folder is chmodded to 777.

Is there a way to set this up so everytime it backs up, it overwrites the existing file instead of creating a new file everytime?

Change the filename date setting to something that doesnt change often, like Year, or Year+Month.

I have created a database backup

let's say I wipe my forums entirely and want to reinstall it from scratch, how do I restore this database backup to have all my members, posts, threads restored?

command line mysql or phpmyadmin

google restore for whichever method you have access to.

I wouldn't test on a live forum, could always backup and restore to a new DB and build your forum up before wiping the old one.

I just updated to the latest version of AutoBackup. I'm running vB 4.1.8

I just ran a backup and noticed the file size was half of what I would of backed up using SSH.

Combine Files set for "yes" and all others are "no"

You're help will be appreciated

Just wanted to ad to my last post:

There is a change in regards to the "AutoBackup" backup file and when I do it through SSH command line.

Command line method: 333,781,110 bytes
"AutoBackup" method: 497,856,231 bytes

There are a total of 380 tables, SSH restores all, "AutoBackup" 2/3 of the total.

This does not make sense to me, perhaps someone else it will.....

Again, any help to make this work for me will be appreciated

I'm not getting support, so I'll have to uninstall.... too bad. It seems to work for most.

I installed it in VB4.1.9
No error while and after installation found!
I could not find anything in the Admin CP to change settings?!
No additional tab or not listed in the options?!
So, I uninstalled it.

You have a cron job trying to run file called databack.php - that isnt anything in this mod.
