Re: Backing Up and Restoring Your Boards
Thanks,
but why is it more dangerous?

Remember forums broke, and i want it to be restored.
Ok i miss everything since last backup but that should be no real problem.

Perhaps a pw check would be a good idea if the restore skript is stored online.

Re: Backing Up and Restoring Your Boards
The way the script is now, you shouldn't store it online (Or at list CHMOD it 644 so that it is non-executable, just change it back when you need it). A password check would be good, but I am not going to implement that.

And yes, as long as you want your entire forum restored from backup, there is no problem. But sometimes you might want only some of the files..... The clue is just to be carefull of course, and knowing what the script does when activated.

Hm, just thinking.
Why not put this little skript into the yabbpackage and make it executable via admincenter?
Would be of great help, don't you think so?

    Monsen, your backup script sounds like exactly what I need. I'm very new to this, however, so could you please tell me which folder I would upload the script to, and how I would execute it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Upload it to your cgi-bin directory or equivalent, chmod it 755, then call it from your browser. Make sure to edit the path to your forum in the script if you don't use the default one (i.e. a directory called yabb2 inside your cgi-bin dir).
    Note that that script will only work as long as your server allows you to run the tar command.
