  • Back up questions

    I did not find the question to this, sorry if it has been ask.

    First question. Is it better to have the attachements in the database or on the server? What is the difference and what is the best?

    Also my DB is almost 400 mb now and when I backup it, I can only backup it directly on my computer. It take me 2 hours each time!!! What would be a better way to backup it? I tried to use the backup option on vbulletin but everytime I am trying to do that, it say it don't have the permission to write on the server.

    Back up through cPanel because it'll produce a much smaller gzip file.

      I strongly recommend looking into another hosting package where shell access included, especially as the database keeps growing and you will run into problems (even with phpmyadmin) to back it up 100%.
