That really isn't as much a phpnuke question as it is a host/os question Smile. Depending on whether you are hosted on a win32 machine or a *nix machine, you would need to set up an AT or a cron job to run the mysql dump or a similar program. That normally requires that you have root access or cgi access.

Yep. To do what you are asking to do will require a cron job to be set up and unless you have root access or can write a cgi program, you will need their assistance. Most good hosts have daily backups. I am assuming you need more often than that. There is usually an additional charge too Bang Head

If cron is not available or you'd prefer to use something else, there are at least a couple of free php alternatives: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! and Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!.
