You don't necessarily back up the database everytime you install a MOD.

I've no opinion on this suggest by the fact is that the phpBB 2.0.x backup utility can't be used and does NOT work if any table is add to the DB.
This utility only backup the 29 original phpBB tables and nothing else ! :(

Hrmmmm.... I thought there was an option for including all tables in the DB, but you are right 8O I'll consider this a bit more now.

As did I, I must admit... err mistake... I actually used it for occational backups, but always got a phpmyadmin-derived complete copy, too... and that was what I used for test environment, I just realized. Damn, good I'm paranoid enough to keep 2 copies of everything.

EM will include text that stresses the value of backing up, but I'm not going to code it. This would be a fine addon MOD if someone wanted to do it though ;)

So officially this idea is rejected, but it is not a bad idea ;)

A first good step should be a backup feature able to save ALL the tables of the datebase on phpBB 2.2 :?
