phpBB Back Up V1.10

Postby ~HG~ » Mon Jan 23, 2006 7:53 pm

I have downloaded and installed this mod today however there are no instructions with it on how to use it.

I manullay opened it in IE and got a page to create a backup and a script box appeared in which I had to type a code in reverse ... which I did.

From that point it appears that nothing further happened.

Can you please include in the Mod itself, the instructions on how to use it and how it works.

Can you also post the answer to that here so I can start using it thanks.

A read of the files shows that you need to edit backup_cfg.php yet no mention is made of this in the install instructions and it should be.

After making the edits required, I have tried to do a backup but still it says no backup has been created.

Did you chmod the directory to 757?

Hi,
I am new here.
I installed this mod and it work now fine with the little necessary modifiyngs .

I have a question/suggestion :
Would it be possible to have the mod not replace the old backup but add a new one with a cycle of 4 or 5 differents backups with a number at the end of the name ?

For sample: the mod could give the backup1, backup2,.... backup5 and then the next will be backup1 again... and so on !

Because of some reasons (hackings is the first)... with this system we could restore the best backup in case of the administrator was away for a long time (holliday).

Thanks for your answer.

I actually sorta now consider this MOD to be abandoned. As such, it might be a good idea to look into other MODs or contact other people who are actively developing backup solutions. Sorry :(

Unfortunately, I don't. Looking at phpbbhacks.com's selection is probably going to be the best option. Well, a better option would be to use Windows Scheduler or cron jobs to do automated backups, but that isn't, unfortunately, always an option...

Ok... Thanks.

I'll look at phpBBhack.com !

For the moment, I try to modify the mod so that it works like I wish... but it's not easy for me.

I don't know if you're still looking for a backup mod, but someone has taken over the development of this mod:

Yes... thanks TerraFrost.

I still use this nice mod and I have modified it so that it give up to 8 differents backup without replace the old one's.

Only a problem is that I must do the backup manualy... the automatic feature don't work... but it's not not a big problem.

I will have a look at this new version... I hope i'ts also a good one.

Many thanks for your answer !
