<![CDATA[ [Module] Backing up/Moving MODx Sites]]> https://forums.modx.com/thread/45125/module-backing-up-moving-modx-sites?page=8#dis-post-259746
Here is a module to backup your entire MODx based site (files & database) into one .zip file, for a single download.

Useful for backing up and moving from a staging server to production server.

Run it, click generate button, than download .zip file

* Multiple backups can be kept, just hit generate again.
* Log data is not inserted into sql dump file to reduce sql bloat

I’ve tested it in a few different hosting environments (Linux, Windows XP) and it seems to work ok, however any feedback would be appreciated.


Installation is fairly straightforward.

1. Create a directory on your webserver to hold modx .zip archives (ie /home/username/_backup ) and set read/write permissions to 777
2. Unzip modbak directory under /assets/modules/ directory. --> /assets/modules/modbak
3. Edit /assets/modules/modbak/download.php, and set $modx_backup_dir to backup dir in new directory created in (1)
4. Create a new Module in MODx manager and copy contents of modbak.module.tpl into module code.
5. Now run module, click generate, if it works there should be a .zip link containing your modx site.


7 Mar 07 v0.9.4 - Fixed . in sitename, added settings.php file to simplify config
4 Mar 07 v0.9 - Added table_prefix, restructured code
- archive and database filenames by default use sitename (ie mysite12-10-07.zip, mysite.sql)
- memory and time limits are set as variables (however also dependent on php.ini host setup)

13 Feb 06 - Added theme look, tested some more, all database tables included, however log data is not inserted.
11 Feb 2006 - Updated MODx module(modbak05.zip) to backup entire modx site including the database tables (by default LOG tables are not included in backup).

Hope it comes in Handy.

I just upgraded to MODx Evolution. Somehow I must have made a mistake because the install overrode my existing database content! I do have a database backup, but I don’t now how to import it to override the wrong content. Both databases have of course the same name and prefix.

I am using phpMyAdmin so I would be very glad if someone could tell my briefly how to accomplish this task. I do not have any clue about MySQL, so an explanation for "dummies" would be fine...

Right now my three months of work is not usable any more.

Looking forward to your reply!

Best regards,

Stefan

Is this true for any user accessing the site, or do you have to be logged in (into manager) to do this?

<![CDATA[ [Solved]backup from manager halts]]> https://forums.modx.com/thread/45136/solved-backup-from-manager-halts#dis-post-260217
Since last week I noticed that backups I try to create from the manager fail. In the SQL file I see that the backup runs up to and including table modx_keyword_xref, then it stops. When I make a backup through phpmyadmin I get a complete SQL backup as usual.
According to the hosting company no changes in versions of MySQL and PHP have taken place. Has anyone had similar experiences or have a hint as to where I can look?

Thanks in advance,
Andres]]>
