A fantastic plugin. Works perfectly and isn't overly complicated to use. I also really appreciate that the developer continues to release updates. If you're considering this plugin definitely get the dropbox addon, it's totally worth the money!
I migrated from vB to XF and used a similar type MOD with vB, so this was one of the first add-ons I was looking for. I'm a bit more experienced now than when I started out with vB, so setup of the [SolidMean] ForumBackup add-on was a breeze.
I want to THANK SneakyDave for making the effort to create this add-on and putting up with all the people not reading the thread for the excellent help information contained within.
The included readme.txt file was all I needed to get it running, yet it seems some questions are asked over and over in the discussion of the add-on. MUCH to SneakyDave's credit his discussion thread is only 15 pages, whereas the similar MOD I used on vB had 40+ pages of questions from confused & frustrated users.
Overall, this is a TOP NOTCH add-on I'm quite happy to have found.
This add-on is a great solution for boards with busy administrators who need an automated system for backups to ensure a healthy forum board. We've been using it for awhile and we're very pleased with it! :)
Absolutely a must-have addon. What else can you say? Works great on VPS and on lesser-powered servers, just need a bit more time between backups on the slower ones to keep them from locking out the board. After a few weeks of feeling out this time spacing it runs like clockwork, every day, without fail.
Must have add-on for XenForo. Gives you the freedom of knowing you have a "plan". Everything works as expected. I would suggest to get a separate storage server and setup a file script to copy the backup files incase of a hardware failure. Or get the paid add-on for this!
Awesome plugin. I've been using this for quite a while now and haven't had any issues. I like how it doesn't create multiple backups on your server, instead it replaces your current ones with the newest backup. I highly suggest using this!
I must have say this app is perfect. More than 400K Member - 500k post- 200k threads and this app took database backup in 2 minutes. All files were backed up in 30 seconds No bugs and works perfectly:)
Time, time, time boy does this save time. First of all Dave i must say what a wonderful job you did and how useful this addon is. I definantly think this should be in the core. Also thanks to everyone who has made great suggestions! Keep up the good work
Wow Im very pleased that you made this addon and specially for free wow you rock mate. This is a MUST have for any forum. Save's time and work. Cause you never know :) Works like a charm :P So keep up the good work and thanks for the update's.
So far so good. Installed and did a quick run of the cron to test it out. Backup was a success. Nervous about relying on a plugin to do the job but a good backup is better than no backup! Thanks for this.
A very useful tool for make backups of my forum, I tested and works perfect witout any bugs, there are many options to configure backups of files or database. Before this addon I realized this task manually, but now all is automatic :) Thanks! @SneakyDave
Great addon. Save yourself from nightmare. No need to manually create crontab again. Dev responded fast to fix a bug. An offsite backup will be great to Dropbox/Onedrive will be great. Pretty please :D
