Restore Backup

Given a non-compressed, text .sql file:

  mysql -u user -p database_name < backup.sql

Be sure that the currently running mybb version is the same as what was running when the backup was created.

File Locations

  • Database passwords: forum/inc/config.php

Crash Prevention: Keep session table from crashing

Issue the following SQL command:

  ALTER TABLE `mybb_sessions` ENGINE = memory


See the bottom of this page for using cron jobs for backups:

Note that for small boards, using the built-in task is sufficient.
