     UPDATED: Now supports database backup (optional)! Backup your whole website in zip format, get it via mail! Who doesn't know how important it is to backup your site/blog often? Again, if you use dynamic sites such as Joomla or a forum (e.g. IPB), there is always a risk to be hacked, no matter how security concern you are! In my experience, it is not always easy to regularly maintain backups, especially, if you don't have a good internet connection. What if your site prepare backups for you and send it automatically to your inbox (Gmail, perhaps)? This script do the same: icon11.gif Backup your whole website/blog by compressing it in zip format icon11.gif Split the zip files to smaller size so that you can easily get them via mail. (Gmail doesn't allow attachments more than 10 MB, this splitting solves this problem) icon11.gif Send backup files to you via mail! Without relying to basic PHP Mail, this script send mail via SMTP (authentication supported), which is much more powerful. In our test run, it could send 250 MB backup file in small 9 MB pieces each to a GMail account!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
