BackWPup Free - WordPress Backup Plugin
DB tables clutter (3 posts)

    Hi,
    I like this plugin very much, however.....

    I have several blogs in one DB using different prefixes for their table names - like blog1_ blog2_ etc.

    When I install the plugin, it correctly selects just the tables with the right prefix - e.g. blog4_*

    However, when I install new blog with a completely new DB name prefix (e.g. blog6_) the new tables blog6_* appear selected in the plugin of all the current blogs regardless their DB prefixes. Therefore I have to go through all the blogs and uncheck the new (blog6_*) tables from the backwpup plugins (one table by one, repeat for every single job, for all blogs).

    Could you please correct?

    Thanks
    S.

    Hi,
    there is a clearly defined $table_prefix in the wp-config.php, so I agree that it makes sense to automatically add tables matching this prefix. However, IMHO others should not be AUTOMATICALLY added.
    At least there could be an option "Automatically add tables not matching $table_prefix prefix?" where one could decide.

    What do you think, please?

    Thanks
    S.
