How to install phpMyBackupPro on a CentOS VPS

edited July 2014 in Tutorials

phpMyBackupPro – another great and helpful web-based application which you can use to backup your MySQL databases. With this free and PHP based application you can create a backup of your database with just few clicks. You can also schedule your backups, manage, download, restore the backups and a lot of more.

In this tutorial you will find a steps how to install phpMyBackupPro. The installation is pretty easy and simple.

First you will need to make sure that you have a web server and PHP version 4.3 or newer to be able to run phpMyBackupPro.

Next you will need to download phpMyBackupPro from their official web site.

wget 2.4/

Extract the downloaded archive.

unzip -d /opt/

and you must set apache as an owner of the directory where the files are extracted:

chown -R apache: /opt/phpmybackup

Please note that the “/opt/” folder is not web accessible so we must create the following file:

nano /etc/httpd/conf/phpmybackuppro.conf

and put:

Alias /phpmybackuppro /opt/phpmybackup/phpMyBackupPro

Options None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

Save and close the file. Next, we will need to edit:

nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

and include the ‘phpmybackuppro.conf’ configuration file in the web server configuration (put the line at the end of the file):

Include /etc/httpd/conf/phpmybackuppro.conf

save and close the file, and after that restart the apache service so the new changes can take effects:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

That’s it. Now open “http://YOUR_IP_ADDRESS/phpmybackuppro” and you can start with the software configuration under the “Configure” tap.
