    Hi all,
    I am gr8 trouble, hope anyone of u would resolve the issue I m facing since I have installed wp db plugin.
    I installed the plugin and set email option for setting up my backup data. I m receiving email containing the files but the file I receive is of 0 byte always.
    Let me tell u that in my backup database page(in wordpress dashboard), following line are written:

    Checking Backup Status

    Checking Backup Folder ...
    Backup folder exists
    Backup folder is writable

    Checking MYSQL Dump Path ...
    MYSQL dump path does NOT exist. Please check your mysqldump path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

    Checking MYSQL Path ...
    MYSQL path does NOT exist. Please check your mysql path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

    Checking PHP Functions (passthru(), system() and exec()) ...
    passthru() disabled.
    system() disabled.
    exec() disabled.

    I'm sorry, your server administrator has disabled passthru(), system() and exec(), thus you cannot use this backup script. You may consider using the default WordPress database backup script instead.

    Now, I have managed to enable passthru(), system() and exec()). Also, I have asked my server administrator the exact "paths to mysqldump" and "path to mysql" . After knowing the paths, I wrote it in "db options, but the problem could not be resolved.
    What should I do now since I have corrected all the errors written on db option pages. I m really in trouble since I am unable to have my backup at all.Hope any expert would be able to guide me.
    waiting for replies....

    I now have the same issue. Looked everywhere and still cannot find a work around. I know you're supposed to contact your admin but the issue here is that my host suck and contacting them will not resolve the issue.
