    PHP is probably timing out. Please note that the most reliable method of backing up your forums is through shell access via telnet or ssh. This is because backing up with a PHP script like that in the Admin CP can result in timeouts errors and an incomplete backup file. The recommended backup procedure is explained in Step One on this page:

    And here is some more info:

      it's timing out... as Steve said backup via telnet/ssh is much safer..
