[Plugin: WordPress Automatic Online Backup] [Pluging: WordPress Backup] Warning (2 posts)

    A couple months ago I installed LiquidStudio's wordpressbackup plugin, did the setup and checked that everything was working. Which it was. I continued to check it for a couple weeks.

    A few weeks ago I had a major meltdown and lost my wordpress sql database. Long story.

    I was too busy just then to go to the wordpressbackup website to see how to initiate a recovery, and then when I tried last week, I was out of luck. The front page

    http://www.wordpressbackup.com/

    is up, but every other page is down with a 404, including 'contact us.' There's a note about updating the software, but that's been there for a week. I did manage to track down an email through the LiquidStudio's webpage and I've written twice asking for information on the status of the plugin and the backup, but I haven't had a reply

    So if you are using this plug-in, you might want to and find another option.

    This could happen not only with a backup plugin but even if you restore from a backup created using phpMyadmin.

    The solution is to update the permalink structure after restoring from the backup.

    Simply go to Settings > Permalinks and press "Save Changes" button. Now refresh your site and recheck the posts and pages. Every thing should be fine...
