You can use Ashe script coupled with cron. See http://webcron.org/ for further informations.

I would assume both. Since most of us can't read whatever language that link was in. LOL

Looks to me like you have to pay for that one. Yes?

There should be a script out there some where that can do this for free I think...

I think there is a free add on for firefox that runs macros that would probably archive the same effect. That might be worth looking into also.

First make sure you can set up cron jobs via your host control panel. Then see if you have access to the command "mysqldump". Finally, you also need the ability to send email attachments via a cron job. Your host should be able to help you with all three of these options if you are not familiar with them.

This isn't really a MOD, as it's not going to be part of the phpBB code.

It's no good, I have to pay for it...
Code:
Only 0.0001 Per Cron launch (30sec.)

I do not understand very well what is a cron job... probably a nice tutorial would be helpful because I guess all of us wants to protect their work.

I would like something like... Daily, at... let's say 3a.m., a database to be saved as gzip and emailed to me. icon_biggrin.gif Drathbun was saying about MySQL dump, but if I'm not wrong, if you take a dump from your phpMy Admin is different from the one take from the Administrator Panel. icon_confused.gif

You want to back up your entire database, and mysqldump will do that better than the admin panel if you have installed MODs.

This is the Firefox add on I was speaking of.

Yes its an external program from phpbb2 but it should still work and its free.
[FireFox Add On] IMacros for FireFox

It claims to be able to automate any function.

@ Drathbun: I did not know that. So if I have MODs, the database from AP isn't good enough. icon_surprised.gif But if I save it from My SQL, I still need the files?

@ Cowboy: I have to try it out, but I guess my computer has to be opened and maybe even the browser, so I can't take automatic saves at 3 am. icon_lol.gif
