Backup mysql database with codeigniter - El Forum - 12-30-2012

I have been looking into the user guide which came with codeigniter. I became very interest with the dbutil(). Particularly the following line of codes:

// Load the DB utility class

// Backup your entire database and assign it to a variable
$backup =& $this->dbutil->backup();

// Load the file helper and write the file to your server
write_file('/path/to/mybackup.gz', $backup);

// Load the download helper and send the file to your desktop
force_download('mybackup.gz', $backup);
It is supposed to backup the currently loaded MySQL database. But unfortunately, it is not working and i get the following message:

Quote:A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Notice

Message: Undefined property: CI_Loader::$dbutil

Filename: views/view.php

Line Number: 10

Fatal error: Call to a member function backup() on a non-object in C:\xampp\htdocs\CodeIgniter\application\views\view.php on line 10

what am i missing here. Any help would be really appreciated

You should not be calling any of that in your view file.

All the dbutil methods should be called in your controller then output what you want to your view.
