Database backup error??


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

Ths could be nothing but i thought id better ask just in case, whenever i create a backup i get this error:


Warning: set_time_limit() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/fhlinux186/e/ectoys.co.uk/user/htdocs/catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php on line 737


Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/fhlinux186/e/ectoys.co.uk/user/htdocs/catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php:737) in /home/fhlinux186/e/ectoys.co.uk/user/htdocs/catalog/admin/includes/functions/general.php on line 22


this message appears on a blank screen and when i click back and return to the tools section it says my database was backed up successfully.


Just wondering if this is a problem.

If your database gets large enough, you might not be able to back it up using the backup tool in OSCommerce. However, these errors mean only that the script tried to increase the timeout limit and it was not allowed to. If your database gets large enough, then the script can timeout before it's done backing up.


An alternative is that many hosts will allow you to backup through their control panel.
