Manage database backups for ProcessWire

Read this blog post about this module

This tool provides an admin interface for the following database backup functions:

  • Creating new backups
  • Uploading backups
  • Restoring backups
  • Providing info on existing backups
  • Managing existing backups (downloading, deleting, etc.)

This is meant to be used as a secondary backup tool, not a primary one. It uses ProcessWire 3.x WireDatabaseBackups class to perform backups and restores. If you are working with really large files, it may be better to perform that task directly in PhpMyAdmin or the native MySQL client.

Requires ProcessWire 3.0.62 or newer.

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
