Full Database Backup Create backups of the entire CraftCMS database, including tables not included in the default backup

Developed by Derrick Grigg


The database backup option in Craft does a backup of most of the mysql tables but not all of them. In most cases that is fine but sometimes you may need the entire database (or more than the default). The Full Database Backup plugin allows you to override the default backup and get a full backup of the database including the following tables:

  • assetindexdata
  • assettransformindex
  • cache
  • sessions
  • templatecaches
  • templatecachecriteria
  • templatecacheelements
