is there any news on new version of the autoBackup add-on?
I search for solution to create backup to an external server, (ip/folder).
Thanks for the reminder, I just release 1.05 here:
You can download it here:
Note that with this version you can set a specific backup folder with this line:
$GLOBALS['AUTOBACKUP_DIR'] = DATA_DIR . '/backups';
But to backup to an external server you'd need to do more work, such as mapping a remote server to a folder
Hope that helps!
Right now CMSB doesn't have anything built in to automate backups to a remote server.
Some options to explore:
- Ask your host what backup options or services they provide
- Setup a cronjob on another server to connect via FTP and backup the site
- Setup a local FTP program on your desktop computer to backup on a schedule
- Setup sshfs or some other linux command line script such as rsync to make a backup
Autobackup will export a copy of your mysql database, but ideally you want all the files (including /uploads/ folders) from your website in your backup.
