Welcome to Geeklog Sunday, May 26 2013 @ 03:52 AM EDT
... you may see at the top of this page:
Warning: fopen("/home/groups/g/ge/geeklog/logs/error.log", "a") - Read-only file system in /home/groups/g/ge/geeklog/htdocs/lib-common.php on line 1322
is not a Geeklog misconfiguration but caused by SourceForge.net. As you may have noticed, all of sf.net was down for maintenance on Sunday and it seems some things still don't quite work yet.
Please be patient and there's no need to report this to the Geeklog team ...
As some of my already know, you can use PHP as a shell scripting language. While as a pure shell language it lacks some of the power of, say, Bash, it is still a viable option for the PHP coder.
This script is a PHP shell script I wrote that will back up a MySQL database. If you already have PHP compiled as a CGI on your system (see php.net's install docs for how to do that) then you can drop this in and it should work fine. The script keeps 7 daily backups, 4 weekly backups and 12 monthly backups which should make recovery much simpler.
In addition to the PHP CGI, you will need tar because the script will compress the database backups. For a point of reference, on my Geeklog database of over 500 stories and 450 users a backup is 1.6MB and only 515KB compressed. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Full Geeklog but i still trying to see how to get the pic module loaded..
Tane Sez: We did intend to do this, but never got around to it. This will hopefully be done sometime in the near future.
