[resolved] How to remove the "backup folder MIGHT be visible" message (20 posts)

    I have moved the htaccess file as recommended, but the message continues to appear.

    How do I remove this message?

    Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public
    To correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to C:/HostingSpaces/xxxxxx/wwwroot/wp-content/backup-db

    I tried the instructions in the FAQ and I still get this annoying message.

    Hi @ancientebooks once you make sure that no one can access your folder publicly did you delete the following line?

    add_action('admin_notices', 'dbmanager_admin_notices'); on line 191 in wp-dbmanager.php.

    Kind regards

    That worked, thank you very much. I misunderstood the instructions.

    Hi, I've done the first bit and the backup folder is no longer visible, but for the life of me I can't find wp-dbmanager.php to delete the line add_action('admin_notices', 'dbmanager_admin_notices'); It doesn't show up in the Appearance CSS. Help!

    I've followed all the instructions to remove this warning but it is still there. I am not someone who understand how to go in an make php changes or anything that technical. (Yes, I read all of the support directions.) After running the entire process for the back up & optimizing, repairing I just deactivated the plug in. That might not be ideal but it serves the purpose, I think.
    Feel free tell me if it creates some other problem I might not be aware of.
    Thanks.

    If you remove the line that I posted 2 replies up, you should not see it. Make sure you upload the file and overwrite the file at the correct location.

    Hello guys,

    The mentioned line wasn't on the line 191 at my wp-dbmanager.php

    Instead it showed up on the 203 line. I deleted and now I can't acess my blog nor my wp-admin panel.

    What should I do guys?

    I tried to add the line back but didn't fix =( Guess I messed up big!

    Need help!

    @meninadigital, jsut by removing the line will not cause WordPress to break. Might be you remove it wrongly and cause a script error and hence a white page (I am guessing this because you can't access both areas). Redownload the plugin and upload to /wp-content/wp-dbmanager/ and try again?

    Hi I followed instructions for this and now my site is down and I cannot access my WP back end!

    This is so frustrating. I am not PHP proficient and it scared the life out of me.
    As this seems a common error, surely you can devise an easy fix for this.

    Can you please provide an easy solution for this which I can implement once my site is back up?

    Can somebody please do something about this error? Every update I have to go back to wp-dbmanager.php to delete uncomment the
    add_action('admin_notices', 'dbmanager_admin_notices');

    Following the instructions (moving the .htaccess) doesn't help. The htaccess is in it's place but the message keeps showing up...

    So I mistakenly renamed the file htaccess and it didn't work. Make sure you type the "." in front so it is ".htaccess" and then it works.
    Thanks wayneulery
