As a former newbie administrator, I was faced with the daunting task of backing up my forum. I tried backing up via phpMyAdmin with o success after my forum reached 8+ megs. I then tried the billions of SSH tutorials given to me by veterans. I didn't understand it then, and I still don't understand it now.

Enter in MySQL Dumper.

1. First, to do this, you need to know how to:
  • Upload Files
  • CHMOD folders
  • Download stuff
  • Install web based PHP scripts (like vBulletin)
If you do not know how to do any of this, this tutorial is not for you. Moving on,

2. Go here: and download the latest .zip of MySQL Dumper and unzip it somewhere on your PC and/or Mac.

3. Upload "/mysqldumper/" somewhere in the public_html/www section of your server. You will need to do this with an FTP program. You may be able to run it outside fo the public_html folder, but I haven't tried it.

4. Navigate to: Choose your language, leave hostname as "localhost" unless your host has specified something different for you. Enter in your vB database's username and password. Leave the rest blank unless specified by web host. Hit "connect to MySQL".

5. You should get confirmation of databases it connected to. Hit save and continue.

6. Continue with installation and default settings

7. You will now see a list of directories. If there are not green check marks on them continue to step 7a. If there are green check marks continue to step 8.

7a. In your FTP client go to: public_htlm/mysqldumper/ and create a folder called "work" if it doesn't already exist. Now CHMOD it to 777. To do this right click the folder, and you will see something that says "CHMOD" and a box fro numbers. Just simply put in "777". Now go inside of this folder and create: config, log, backup, and structure folders; CHMOD them to 777 as well. Go back to your browser and hit "check directories" and see if the green check marks come on. They should at this point. If not, ask for help in this thread. Also, one of the posts further down had this to say about running your server in safe mode:

It was a mix of deleting and creating again the folders in 777. Apparently the ones it creates automatically are no good, so...

When you get the green tick on work delete all the 4 subfolders, and make them again, put them in 777 run the script again and it should work. At least it did for me. If not, try to run combinations of deleting, running the check script and making folders in 777
Don't know if this works, no safe mode server to verify it on; but it shouldn't hurt anything to try if you're having these problems.

8. Hit "continue with installation"., then hit "start mysql dumper".

To back up go to 9a. To restore go to 9b.


9a. Now on the bar on the left hand side, click "back up". Select "start new back up" and it will begin backing up your database. It will take a little while depending on size, so just wait and watch it.

10a. After it is done, on the menu bar select "File administration". Click your database of choice. You will be displayed with a list of backups on record. Right click which ever one you wish and save it. You must RIGHT CLICK, left click will just give you a little bit of information about the file. I'm not sure why...


9b. If the .sql file is not already on the server upload it to /public_html/mysqldumper/work/backup.

10b. Select "restore" option on left hand side bar. Click the database you want to restore.

11b. Select the radio button next to desired backup, hit restore at the top, and let it go. Should be finished in a bit and you're good to go.

This method hasn't failed me yet.

Since this is an open source project, I am going to try to work on integrating it into vB 3.5 and 3.6 when school gets out, though this is a ways away. If I did this, than all you would do is upload the files and hit "back up". It can also be configured to do nightly back ups and such, which I may write about later if I have time.

If you notice any problems with my write up (typos, etc) let me know and I'll correct them. If you need help with any of the steps let me know; but only if you're willing to learn, I live a busy life of rock bands, jazz bands, calculus, and parties; don' have time to waste with jerks. . I will not help anyone for free with a "do it for me" or "do it now!" type attitude, it will cost you types .

Thats all, let me know how it goes!
