    Hello,

    I moved to a VPS with nginx as a reverse proxy for apache.
    In the shared hosting it was working fine. But here there is some issue.

    Checking Backup Folder (/var/backupfolder) ...
    /var/backupfolder folder does NOT exist. Please create 'backup-db' folder in '/var/controlpanel/thepathtotheblog/wp-content' folder and CHMOD it to '777' or change the location of the backup folder under DB Option.
    Backup folder is NOT writable. Please CHMOD it to '777'.
    
    Checking MYSQL Dump Path ...
    MYSQL dump path does NOT exist. Please check your mysqldump path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.
    
    Checking MYSQL Path ...
    MYSQL path does NOT exist. Please check your mysql path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

    Question 1)
    The blog is installed in subfolders of

    /var/controlpanel/
    . Can it write backups to
    /var/backupfolder/
    ?

    Question 2)
    The paths to mysql and mysqldump that I configured in db-options are right. I confirmed them with "which". However the plugin still gives red errors saying that the paths do not exist.

    Any idea what the issue may be?

    1) it can write to anyhere as long as the folder is writable
    2) If you are sure the path is right, ignore the error

    If backup does not work, refer to #1 of http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-dbmanager/faq/
