[resolved] BackupWordpress doesn't add the sql dump to the backup (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I've recently started using BackupWordpress, and it's a great tool - very simple to use.

    Unfortunately, I have a problem. Sometimes, when I kick off the backup, the files are zipped and the sql dump is created, but the sql dump is not added to the zip file to create the final backup.

    Any idea why this might be happening?

    Fixed this - I needed to add both the define( 'HMBKP_FILES_ONLY', false ); and define( 'HMBKP_DATABASE_ONLY', false ); settings to my config file (even though I thought these were false by default).

    Hmm, that sounds like a bug as you shouldn't have to define those just to get it working.

    Thanks for reporting, will look into it and if there is a bug fix in next release.

    Actually, the problem isn't fixed; it seems there's something wrong with the shell_exec command that does the zipping so that once it's done, it doesn't go on to add the sql file to the files zip file.

    I think it may be a permissions issue as this works when I do the zipping manually but it doesn't work when the zipping happens via the wp_cron job.

    Thanks for the update,

    I think we may have fixed this, could you try downloading the development version from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/backupwordpress.zip and see if that fixes your problem.
