This tool, accessible from the Admin page by clicking "Backup", can make a backup of several kinds of data in PhpGedView.

The data you choose to back up will be gathered into a ZIP file, which you can download by clicking the provided link after the backup has been successfully made.

The ZIP file will remain in your index directory until you remove it manually.

Note: If you have installed your index folder outside of the root directory of your web server, the references to some of the files in the zip will include directory paths of the form "../". Some zip utilities (for example Windows XP's native zip capability in Windows Explorer) can't handle this style of file path. You may need to get a tool that correctly handles these paths.
