I've checked the docs and tried all that I could think of, but I cannot for the life of me get CRON / db Backup to work in any of the Zero XI versions. Was no problem in any of the Coral ones.

 

The CRON ini for db_backup that ships with Zero XI has this for a path:

 

"path   = C:\UniServerZ\home\us_cron\test\db_backup\Run_db_backup.bat"

 

However, there is no "Run_db_backup.bat" nor the VBS file it refers to in the Zero XI package.

 

What am I missing? :)

 

Cheers!

CRON for db_backup was removed. Use the plugin ZeroXI_phpmybackuppro_2_4.exe which provides more flexibility.

 

All the best

Thanks, Ric! :)  ... but which one do I use? CRON from US or the schedule from phpMyBackupPro?

 

Would you be so kind as to spell out the exact instructions (I have gone through the Help file and docs already) 

 

I have a production site that needs a scheduled backup but so far, I have been unable to implement it.

 

Cheers!

Hi Lyle
I have finally published the new automatic database backup module.
Many thanks for testing the betas.
In addition I have included a new portable FTP module making it
easier to implement the FTP option in the backup module.

Again many thanks for your time and effort in testing.

New Modules:
ZeroXI_filezilla_server_1_0_0.exe
ZeroXI_filezilla_server_xp_1_0_0.exe
ZeroXI_mysql_autoback_1_0_0.exe

All the best
Ric
