WP-DB-Backup

On-demand backup of your WordPress database.

Usage

  1. Click the Tools or Manage menu in your WordPress admin area.
  2. Click the Backup sub-menu.

  3. The plugin will look for other tables in the same database. You may elect to include other tables in the backup. ** NOTE ** Including other tables in your backup may substantially increase the size of the backup file! This may prevent you from emailing the backup file because it's too big.

  4. Select how you'd like the backup to be delivered:

* Save to server : this will create a file in /wp-content/backup-*/ for you to retreive later * Download to your computer : this will send the backup file to your browser to be downloaded * Email : this will email the backup file to the address you specify

  1. Click "Backup!" and your database backup will be delivered to you.

The filename of the backup file will be of the form DB_prefix_date.sql DB = the name of your WordPress database, as defined in wp-config.php prefix = the table prefix for this WordPress blog, as defined in wp-config.php date = CCYYmmdd_B format: 20050711_039 the "B" is the internet "Swatch" time.
See the PHP date() function for details.

When having the database backup emailed or sent to your browser for immediate download, the backup file will be deleted from the server when the transfer is finished. Only if you select delivery method "Save to server" will the backup file remain on your server.

*** SECURITY WARNING *** Your database backup contains sensitive information, and should not be left on the server for any extended period of time. The "Save to server" delivery method is provided as a convenience only. I will not accept any responsibility if other people obtain your backup file. *** SECURITY WARNING ***

Advanced

If you are using WordPress version 2.1 or newer, you can schedule automated backups to be sent to the email address of your choice.
