Title: Backup of forum
Post by: AquariofiliaAcores on October 25, 2010, 11:34:38 am
Hi, we have a forum http://aquarofiliaacores.createaforum.com/ (http://aquarofiliaacores.createaforum.com/) and we would like to know, what is needed to have a backup of the forum.

I have read:
"I can do a database backup of your forum for $50. I have write and create a database export system since it does not exist yet to export the specific tables for your forum.

A database consists of a .sql file which can be used to import into other software that is as far as I will go and will not be able to provide support beyond the data file itself."

"If you have paypal payment to sales@smfforfree.com
I can provide a database backup file within 24 hours as soon as I finish writing/developing the export script."

Is it still the same? Do I get a receipt for the $50?

Thank you in advance,

John

How can I know, how much my forum is in MB? If I request the backup for the $50 will I get a receipt?

Should be SMF 2.0 RC2 or if not SMF 2.0 RC1 I suggest installing a fresh forum then overriding the new forum with the backup.
