    P.S. I assume I need to log in with my MODx username and password?

      If the config files are setup correctly then you should hit the Tools button (from the top red bar), then from the next screen you should have a "Backup Tool - create a backup file..." button - hit this and all should run....

          Hey as anyone ever site vault.


          Sounds like a really good solution. But wondered if anyone actually used it!

            Does someone did the components to inlude this Backup into Revo manager ?

              Has anyone progressed this and created a backup solution for REVO yet? Is Janitor the only one?

                I use Databackup ( http://modx.com/extras/package/databackup ) and combine it with a plugin. It produces a backup every time I log into the Manager ( OnManagerLogin ). The backup is done with a limited range of tables, enough for me.

                $output = $modx->runSnippet('backup',array(
                   'includeTables' => 'modx_gallery_album_contexts,modx_gallery_album_items,modx_gallery_albums,modx_gallery_items,modx_gallery_tags,modx_media_sources,modx_media_sources_contexts,modx_media_sources_elements,modx_menus,modx_site_content,modx_site_htmlsnippets,modx_site_plugin_events,modx_site_plugins,modx_site_snippets,modx_site_templates,modx_site_tmplvar_access,modx_site_tmplvar_contentvalues,modx_site_tmplvar_templates,modx_site_tmplvars',
                   'writeTableFiles' => 'false'

                There is only one problem with the backup: I have to extract the comments out of the backupfile before importing to mysql.
