    Description:

    Automatically closes and opens your forum for the purpose of a complete database backup. This add-on is designed to work in conjunction with your server Cron which does a mysqldump backup of your database every day. The idea is to close the forum a couple minutes before the server Cron runs and open the forum a couple minutes after the server Cron is finished.
