Last changes from version 0.1 to 0.5
bugs fixed :
+ the Ajax control was calling a bad file in normal installation with random name for the archive directory. Yet fixed in version 0.1 bis
+ Sentence of the french translation was forgotten
+ Bad indexation of the archives from the option to the application

new Features:
+ A new option cron is added to the options gz and download.
+ Cron cannot replace a file with the same name aged of less than 20 hours
+ Enforced the protection by adding a password to cron. The main protection relies to the scarcity of the cron command name
+ Cron denies access if the command name is still the original
+ Added download of an old archive from the admin panel. Delete is easy to implement but it will not be.
+ Added using an option prefixe indexed by the number of archives. The current prefix can be changed manually in qa-config.php. It is a way to put in the same database 2 sets of QA tables.
  It's here for flavor purposes. You must not use it if you don't understand it.
+ Added handling of mysql constraints to avoid conflicts between sets of QA tables ( !! )

+ Added cleaning Ajax Cache each time the admin option are saved. Might be improved ...
+ Added handling the database size for information pupose.
+ Added collecting new options
+ Added a filelist of current archives

Question2Answer Dbsave v 0.5
This is Dbsave plugin , a plugin for **Question2Answer** that provides DbSave , the versatile database dump for QA.

You can browse the repository on

You got probably the latest zip from
the 0.5 version in on

the latest version in on

- save the main database of QA on the disk in a writable directory
- download the same file at the same moment to avoid timeouts troubles
- download only in case of lack of writable directory
- optionnaly, adds a new prefix to tables. Indexed like the archive, constraints well handled

Near Future
- provides a link to be called by an external cron with a specific password ( v 0.6 including some css cosmetic )
- optionnaly tries autocron between 2:00 and 5:59 h ( v 0.7 )
- Notifications by email or by INSQA ( Internal Notification System of QA ) ( v 0.8 and fixing of some core themes )
- External Cron Solution by a smart system ( v 0.9 )
- Cleaning, php compatibility adaptation from 5.1 to 7.0 ( v 1.0 )

edit : a new version 0.5.1 is on the site only for those using php 5.2 with non conventionnal languages to handle multiple translations variants in the same installations. Curiously , the function qa_lang() doesn't work exactly the same way in 5.2 and 5.3

Q2A version: 1.7
version 0.6 is coming ASAP. This project began friday, 1.0 will be probably ready next friday
It is developped using 5.5 and 5.6 But, now it is fine with php 5.3 and 5.4. I haven't a regular 5.2 installed. The mine doesn't work with dbsave. I'll fix this trouble quickly
