Backup... ( 03:10:40 ThuJan 3 2008 )

Board Plan: Variable

I tried to create a server-side backup of my board today, and nothing happened (perhaps it did but doesn't display the available backup on the list?). When I tried to download the backup, nothing happened. I checked the source code for the page in order to get a direct link to the backup download, and when I tried the direct link, it reverted to the generic admin panel.

Is my board consuming so many resources that I'm unable to create a backup? May I make an appointment to download a backup?

Edit: I received an eMail that told me the backups were able to be completed (the last time, it just directly downloaded the file without the eMail).

What type of file is the backup?

Hi Maj,

The backups aren't anything a human can read - they can only be read by the board server. They contain all the data in a format the board can understand, but if you opened the file you'd probably just see a load of gibberish. Did your backup finish? :smile:
