    that would be great!

    You're not understanding the limitations of PHP.

    PHP, as set up on most servers, simply stops executing after 30 seconds or less. That is not enough time to perform a full backup of the busier web forums. Also, you would have to create a directory in your forums that is 'world writeable' (0777).
