Backing up xenForo using a shell script and crontab - Shell script to backup your xenForo data via the command line (with the option to upload to AWS S3)

XenForo backup script
Made because I hate doing this manually!

You will need
  • SSH access
  • pigz or pbzip2 installed (if you want to use the faster, multi-core compression methods)
  • An Amazon S3 account (and s3put installed) if you want to sync your SQL backups with AWS
  • A little experience with the Linux shell environment
How to use
  1. Download backup_script.sh...

It's for XenForo only or any site with mysql database?

I am sorry, but different tools for creation of backup copies there is a huge number. Is impossible each of them to call the XenForo resource.
After all there is no integration from XenForo or at least the accounting of its any features.

I'm not use this. Not yet. But from the information:

  • db_name - The name of your database
It seems you can backup only xenforo database or all of your database.
