[For 1.8] Get Daily Automatic Backup of Your MyBB Database
Its very important to keep daily backups of your MyBB community forums. Because there are so many different things that could potentially happen to your MyBB forum like server hardware failure, hacking etc. However, in this tutorial I will guide you to  get daily backup of your MyBB forum Database.

  •    Login your MyBB admin area and navigate to: Tools & Maintenance -> Task Manager (from your left hand sidebar menu)
  •    By default MyBB has a “Weekly Backups” task which is non-active so we will edit that one, find the “Weekly Backups” in the table and click “Options -> Edit Task”
  •    Leave all the fields as they are  and only change the fields which mentioned below:
  •    Field Name: Weekly Backups (Change it to "Daily Backups")
  •    Time: Weekdays: From this menu select “Every Weekday
  •    Task Enabled: Check the “Yes” box
  •    Scroll down & click “Save Task
  •    Next you will get a cron warning error, click “Yes

Now MyBB system will start saving backups of your database in your backup directory. If you don't want daily backups than you can select days (e.g. Sunday, Monday etc) from the Weekdays menu/field.

Indeed very useful to use but i have one simple question for you, if i follow your tutorial just curious what folder will the backup be placed into is this is what it supposed to do?
Answer : The backup will be saved in admin/backups folder. But you can easily download/delete old backups from your Admin CP. For this log into your Admin CP and click Database Backups from quick access panel.
