Half of the problem is already fixed. A couple versions ago, I removed the feature that disables the forum during backup because so many people were having problems with it. While people are accessing the server while it is backing up, it can overload the server, so I re-added the feature and made it more advanced so that the people that had problems with it before, shouldnt have them now. Well anyways, now the CPU usage shouldnt be as high as it was before. But I am still unable to find another way of doing the backups in which it doesnt use so much memory.
Thanks for making the mod.. too bad it disables my board every night like so many others. I really have to remove it because it is taking users away from the board.. BTW i have just installed the latest version of the mod..
Im sorry to hear that. I will look into this problem when I have the chance.
EDIT: If the mod disables the forum and doesn't enable it afterwards, it should enable the forum automatically. For this to work though, cache/auto_backup/ has to exist and be writable. Does it exist on your forum and is it CHMODed 777?
I've recently moved to a server that supports cron jobs, so I've disabled this mod. The only problem is, I seem to have done it badly, because it's still calling cron.php from posting.php all the time. It's not really a problem, since cron.php doesn't exist anymore, but it's awfully untidy. Does anyone have a thought on what I might have done wrong?
