[resolved] Bug: Backup works with error message (8 posts)

    I get the message that it worked:
    "Database Backed Up Successfully On '10. April 2014 @ 13:20'."
    but no e-mail conformation.

    Below i get the Message that MySQl UND MYSQLDUMP doest not exist (see below) though my server adminstrator checked it and deactivated the safe_mode flag for me. BTW: Do I need the PlugIns' security features if my admin has this safe_mode and does the backup for me?

    DBManager: 2.6.5
    Database Host localhost
    Database Name usr_web571_3
    Database User web571
    Database Type MYSQL
    Database Version v5.1.63

    Error Message:

    Open the .sql file with a text editor and ensure that the data backed up looks ok. If it looks ok to you, then it is ok.

    There are many causes if you do not receive the email such as the file is too big to be send by email.

    ok, did it and it looks fine. Its only 1,1 MB, but I dont get an e-mail if I trigger with "backup" from "Backup DB". Or is it only if its scheduled?
    Why are these strange error messages in "Backup DB" which are in contradiction to the green success message?

    Because there is no fool proof way to detect a success backup and hence the "Note: The checking of backup status is still undergoing testing, it may not be accurate.
    Backup Database"

    The email is not scheduled, it is sent immediately after the backup is done.

    Ok, then the sending of the e-mail does not work if triggered manually. I mostly do not get an e-mail.

    Even if you go to WP-Admin -> Manage DB -> "E-mail database backup file to" ?

    I just tried and I received the email. So I am guessing something wrong with your email server? Perhaps you can check the email logs?

    That works fine....
    Maybe that error message occurs cause Read/ write rights are not set correctly? Which do I have to set?

    This problem also occurs with the .htaccess file: I get this error message, though I cannot find that file in that path:
    "Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public
    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager "

    I don't think so. If manual emailing works fine, that should not be a problem emailing the backup to you, unless of course after backing up and when sending the email it times out.

    Give my dev version a try https://github.com/lesterchan/wp-dbmanager/archive/master.zip, I changed the email to use the default WP email.
