When I try to run forum datadump from the admin menu I get this error. Get the same error from the nightly datadump cronjob.

Usage: php admdump.php /path/to/dump_file [compress]

What's changed: we had a series of issues at Bluehost following their systems upgrade, filesystem move, and then a DDoS on the shared server.

The most recent fix is what broke the datadump. It involved manually changing $DBHOST_DBTYPE in GLOBAL.php

$DBHOST_DBTYPE = "pdo_mysql";

After this change, the datadump broke. Running db backup manually from phpMyAdmin works fine.

Running 2.7.7 and yes, I know I should upgrade to the latest version but have put it off out of dread since it has to happen live on the production site and I've far had too many upgrade catastrophes (not with FUDforum) lately.

Thanks.

Look at the comments in admdump.php - the script can only run from command (if you supply a dumpfile as first argument) OR from the web (ACP), but not both. This restriction was removed in subsequent releases.

If you need any further assistance, please upgrade as you are running on a VERY VERY old and desupported version of the forum.

The cronjob script is the recommended one that starts
echo -e 'submitted=1\n&compress=1\...

I was hoping to figure out why it stopped working after running nightly for 18 months. Oh well! Clearly beyond my fairly lightweight skills Wink

I hope to upgrade before the end of the month. Wish me luck...

Thanks.

The upgrade is well worth the time and effort. Best of luck!
