unable to back up
« on: March 12, 2019, 02:18:31 PM »
i tried to do a back up and got an error message.  i'm not very good at this and i don't think in the last 10 years i've ever been able to get the "back up" done properly, but i understand that i need to migrate from smf 1.1 to smf 2.1, so that's why i tried again.  here is the message.  any idea what's up?

I would suggest if you have cpanel to backup via phpmyadmin if you need help you can pm me here or on smfhacks

SMF backup doesn't always work all the times.   And there are two parts to a backup first the database and second the site files.

How big is your database? If you have a big forum phpmyadmin is no good either due to the size file limit restriction that they have. It would be better imo to make a backup using another script, such as mysqldumper for example.
