WP-DBManager

Manages your WordPress database.

My database is not backed up / My backup file is 0Kb

  • Ensure that your host allows you to access mysqldump. You can try to narrow the problem by Debugging via SSH:
  1. In wp-dbmanager.php
  2. Find check_backup_files(); on line 243
  3. Add below it echo $command;
  4. Go to WP-Admin -> Database -> Backup
  5. Click Backup
  6. It should print some debugging statements
  7. Copy that line than run it in SSH
  8. If you need help on SSH contact your host or google for more info

What is the difference between WP-DBManager and WP-DB-Backup?

  • WP-DBManager uses mysqldump application to generate the backup and mysql application to restore them via shell.
  • WP-DB-Backup uses PHP to generate the backup. In some cases WP-DB-Backup will work better for you because it requires less permissions. Not all host allows you to access mysqldump/mysql directly via shell.
  • WP-DBManager allows you to have automatic optimizing and repairing of database on top of backing up of database.

Why do I get the message "Warning: Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public!"?

  • Ensure that you have renamed htaccess.txt to .htaccess and placed it in your backup folder (defaults to wp-content/backup-db/)
  • If you are 100% sure you have did that and have verfied that the folder no longer is accessible to the public by visiting the URL http://yousite.com/wp-content/backup-db/, you can safely disable the notice by going to WP-Admin -> Database -> DB Options and set Hide Admin Notices to Yes.
