Description Always wanted to have an automated backup that would be send to your e-mail account? With EasyBackup you can do it.

This plugin is able to create a daily backup of your e107 MySQL database and send it to the e-mail address of your choice. It does not run by a cron job, but it is automatically activated by the first visitor of a certain class that can be defined by the administrator.
There is a test mode available; that enables the main admin to test the backup procedure and kick it off as many times as you want.

Short installation guide:
1. Install the plugin
2. Admin area, EasyBackup, EasyBackup Settings

You can define any e-mail address you like to send the e107 MySQL backup to. General advise: open a new account with lots of space (e.g. gmail or yahoo account) and use that to send your daily database backups to.

When the test mode is activated only the main administrator can test the backup procedure, multiple times a day. When the test mode is de-activated, only one e-mail will be send per day.
A check file will be created in the easybackup/bu folder and the setting 'Last EasyBackup creation date' will be written into the configuration.
The setting 'Delete database after successful e-mail?' is advised to be 'On'; that will save a lot of space on your website. If the database is not removed automatically; you will have to delete the databases manually after a while from time to time.
The special administrator menu 'Backup folder overview' will allow you to keep track of the files in the easybackup/bu folder and delete files manually if necessary.

The setting 'Send mail' enables you to even control (and skip) the mail process. So it is possible to have backups created that remain on your server.
For this purpose a setting 'Delete previous backup' has been created; it will allow you to have the backup of yesterday automatically be removed. In that way your server space is not running out because of an accumulation of backups.

The EasyBackup plugin is also capable of zipping the file; this functionality will only be visible if the PHP 'zip' module is enabled on your server host.

With the 'EasyBackup trigger class' you can set which class will trigger the database creation. If you set it to e.g. 'Everyone' the very first visitor can trigger the backup, if set to e.g. 'Members' the very first visiting member of the day will trigger the backup. You can set any user class you want; as long as you keep in mind that you need one visitor a day of a certain user class to create the backup on a daily basis.

EasyBackup is only capable of backing up your e107 MySQL database. Restore has to be done manually with e.g. phpMyAdmin. Your complete e107 website also consists of images, downloads, plugins, themes etcetera. You should create a regular back-up of those e107 elements too.
