WordPress Backup to Dropbox
[resolved] No SQL Dump? (4 posts)

    I simply love this plugin, but can not seem to get it to backup the sql database. I do not see any errors in the server logs or the plugin logs, all the other files seem to be uploading to dropbox just fine. I have included a copy of the plugin log below.

    Would the sqldump not be in the root of the app folder with the other site files that are backed up?

    Thanks,
    B00n

    The two SQL dump files are written to 'wp-content/backups' and will be uploaded to Dropbox within this directory.

    Yea, I never could get it to create the sql backups and never seen a log error or anything. I just wrote a cron backup script to copy it to my mounted dropbox. Thanks for the plugin though, will try it again one day and see if it does it :-)

    Cheers!

    I have this same problem. The log indicates that the sql is being backed-up but it does not appear in the App/wpb2d/wp-content/backups folder in my dropbox. There are no indication of errors in the log. I also checked the backups folder under wp-content on my website, the only thing there is the log file.

    -server configuration-
    Wordpress: 3.4.1
    php: 5.2.9
    wpb2d: 1.4.2

    I see that my server has the rather old php version 5.2.9 could that be a factor?
