What's included with the free phpBB backups?

We back up all aspects of phpBB, including:

  • Back up phpBB threads, posts and replies
  • Back up phpBB users
  • Back up all phpBB settings
  • Back up phpBB designs and layout

We back up your phpBB site once a month. If you like our service, you can upgrade to a paid for account (starting at just $4.99/month) to get daily or weekly website backups.

Are there any limitations?

We have two small limitations: you cannot back up more than 50MB and you can only back up website files (i.e. HTML files and images; not PDFs or movies). Otherwise, our free phpBB backup package has no strings attached!

What happens if I run out of space?

For phpBB, 50MB is more than enough space for about 50,000 posts. But if you need more, you can upgrade at any time, for just a small monthly fee.

Can I back up other forums?

Unlike similar services, Backup Machine can back up any website or web app!
