Hi, sorry for the delay, we are planning on developing a extension (currently in development) that will allow you to generate your own dump!

Do you need the backup right now, or can it wait until the extension is ready?

You may now use Special:DataDump

Ok but that's not automated? How is it different from Special:Export?

It generates a full backup behind the scenes of your wiki without timeouts.

Special:Exports does not generate a full dump of your wiki, rather you have to specify pages.

This should probably be another issue, but the image dump doesn't work:

We can generate the image dump (generation of image dumps is restricted to staff for legal reasons).
