    Hi everyone to my first post!

    Hi have been used WP since v1.5, and during the last years I have been using wp-db-backup or wp-dbmanager to get a daily copy of my DDBB in my mail.

    Now I´m thinking about use export/import option, but I have 2 doubts:
    -it´s a plugin to extend export to wp-option? (I haver read export doesn´t save plugins options)
    -and the most important: it´s a way/plugin to do the export option to send me the xml file to a mail?

    I have search, but I only found "cron view" plugin to add a cron job, but I´m not sure how to mix it with the export option.

    Any ideas about if it´s possible??
    anyone knows a pluging to do it?? (I have search it along plugings repositories, but i didn´t found anything)

    Cya!

    My advice is to stick with the full database backup. Then if you have plugins with tables, those tables get backed up also.

    I have tried to backup/restore the full database with mysql export/import.
    The problem it´s always crash it (I backup from 2.1.2 and tried to restore in a local beta 2.8... I´m not sure if the codification can be the problem), and the only way to restore is from export/import option inside WP, so to don´t have problems in the future, I don´t want to use mysql :S

    *NOTE: Don't stop the backup plugins from emailing your database, unless you check with your host and find that they also backup your database(s).

    The problem it´s always crash it

    What crashes? Is it the MySQL database restoration, or WordPress after you do the restore.

    I backup from 2.1.2 and tried to restore in a local beta 2.8...

    If you are using WordPress 2.1.2 at your site, then at your "local beta" computer, you are wanting to import to a 2.8 site, then the export/import via WordPress is the only way to do that. But if you were needing to do that everyday, that's something else.

    The MySQL restoration

    the export/import via WordPress is the only way to do that

    Ok, it´s works...
