  • Bizarre! 404 Error issue resolved by renaming the backup folder to ’backup1’ and then to ’backup’. Guessing due to a glitch on the server?

    Backup successfully completed after changing ’megabytes = 64’ to ’megabytes = 128’. smiley
    • I am a newbie who has had mixed success with BkupMODx. Since BkupMODx is so useful, yet people seem to have trouble with it, I decided to keep notes on my progress. Maybe my experience would be helpful in documentation development. The notes also will refresh my memory the next time I use BkupMODx.

      The notes run long, and they include dead-end bad ideas as well as successes. Because they are potentially confusing, I don’t think that they belong on this forum. I would like to mail them to whomever is supporting BkupMODx. How could I do that?

        I looked just like that in 1964.
      • Okay, I’m using Evo1.0.4. I’ve set this up as a module and it works beautifully - except it does not include the database file in the zip.

        I’ve commented out the lines in the source which remove the created mySQL dump file after the backup is complete, and get the following

        The sql dump is created and placed in the archive folder, but NOT added to the zip.

        Any ideas?
        • Your archive directory is not included in the dir0 path. Use: dir0=/home/murray/public_html/mtc/,true

          See if that works better.
          • Cheers, that did it. Module is pretty wicked smiley
            • Hello,

              Thnx for the wonderfull tool.

              I just did a restore, but all the tables starting with a W were missing (in the backup).

              How can I fix this ?

                Kinda odd! All tables are targeted for the sql backup process. Try increasing the megabytes setting in the config tool and rerun the backup.
                • Found it, Some of the last tables are empty and in this case the last output is not written.
                  It works if you change line 91 of model_dbdump.class.php from :

                  $output = $lf .’# End of dump #’ . $lf;
                  to
                  $output .= $lf .’# End of dump #’ . $lf;
                  • Hi guys,

                    Got this great addon up and working - but not too sure from the ZIP that is created where the SQL file is placed? Any ideas anyone?
