How to add a cron job?

Post by open-your-eyes » Fri Oct 20, 2017 1:27 am

Hi!

I have cron jobs in my cPanel. I want to save my forum's database once a day, archive it and send it to my e-mail adress. I am not good with Linux. So can anybody help me? Please!
Thanks.

Use this instead:
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... _backup_2/

Or any other(if any) extension that does that.

Thanks

Actually, I need it for a 3.0 forum. I have also 3.1, but that one is too small. Don't need cron.

I need it for a 3.0 forum.
There was a "MOD" that worked on 3.0 - I will see if I can find a copy of it later.

Then you’ll need this MOD:
