    Hi to all
    I got error:

    There appears to be an unauthorized attempt from this site to access your database located at http://www.xxx.xxx. The attempt has been halted.

    What I can do?
    Thank you in advance.

    The hosting company is probably denying the plugin MySQL access seeing as it's requesting the entire database.

    Lejla,

    I was also receiving your reported error. After looking at all of my plugins, I realized that I had 2 different backup plugins activated. Deactivating all but plugin "Backup by Sorin Iclanzan" stopped the error and allowed the "manual" backup to proceed successfully.

    Verify that you are using only ONE backup plugin.

    I'm having the same error. And I'm not even trying to backup the database - just the content and uploads. Please help. I don't think the hosting company is blocking anything as other database plugins have worked just fine. But those don't back up content and images, which is why I was hoping this would work.
