Compatible XF Versions

This add-on allows you to turn your board on and off with command line interface.

So you can use this option to flip the "Board active" switch when you preparing to make a database backup and flip it back on when done.

You can automate the whole backup process by making a shell script like this and adding it to the crontab



Bash:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

backup_dir=$public_doc_dir/backups/$(date +"%d-%m-%Y")/$random_string
