  • How Do I Create a Schedule Back Up?

    Anyone know how to write a script to auto / schedule back up vB database?

    You might want to check with your host to see if they can do something like this... there's no way to do it via vBulletin.

      I can manually SSH into my linux machine using using SSH client on my Windows machine and ran the backup using the manual provided by vB. Hrmm.. I guess I would have to research else where to automate my task. It's kinda pain in the ass to manually back up the database. you know!I hope the automatic/schedule back up feature will be added in next version. Thanks anyway.

        If your host provides access to cron jobs, do a search for 'cron backup' on these forums.

          Thanks, I used shell scripts, and crontab to get this done!

            just put your backup commands into a file
            chmod 755 filename
            and add the entry to cron
