Auto Backup Database (Updated)
Since spooks isn't available, I would like to add this addon.
This contribution automatically backs up your database at regular intervals whilst you are logged into admin and create archive backups at a longer intervals.
Backups can be GZipped to conserve server space.
Backups can now be split or extended past max execution time if you have a very large dBase.
Backups are compatible with Database Backup Manager so selective restores can be made.
A cron job can also be set up to create timed daily backups, regardless of whether anyone logs in or not.
Archived backups can also be auto deleted after a set period, so server won't fill up.
Includes separate language file to ease alterations for non English speakers.
Basic install is just 5 easy steps.
Written for osC V184.108.40.206 and compatible with PHP 5.5 and older php versions and is register_globals compatible so should work with most versions.
