    I think it would be nice if wp would have this feature..
    currently to do a back up.. i would have to backup all my files...
    and the sql manually..
    hopefully there's a automatic process.. :D

    hmm that script was posted way back in feb - does it work for 1.2?
    mySQL dumps are fine as a backup but ideally I would like a readable text copy so I could check old entries offline. Would it be really hard to get WordPress to generate something like the MT export file?

    It would .... WP would have to add all sorts of stuff to make the db as big as an MT one :p

    I am moving my blog to a new server so I installed the new release on the new server and tried to do a restore of the database from the old server. I get a message saying

    /home/meisheid/www/beyondtherim/backup/12012005wordpress-orig.sqlRestore successful.

    but there is nothing there and when I do a new backup the file is blank so it appears the restore is not working.

    Any suggestions?
