Almost working perfectly, size file is 20 B (8 posts)

    Hi,
    I installed the plugin and it looks working and running without errors. I think I just missed something because the size of the database file is 20B http://screencast.com/t/9fy15eyOdw
    Actually I don't know anything about path http://screencast.com/t/8YRZSDm8, do I need to use them?

    Also I'm running a Network in WordPress 3.0, I'm assuming there is one installation so one database, I activated the plugin only in the main site should I do it in every sites?

    Thanks

    Hi thanks for this,
    I'm getting very near look at this screen, i insert the path too http://screencast.com/t/ki7aaqeC

    Also I followed the steps you showed me and it was alright, I got the code
    /home/content/68/6802868/html --host="thi1027401151938.db.6802868.hostedresource.com" --user="thi1027401151938" --p etc..........

    The last step about SSH is somthing that I don't really know. I enabled SSH in my hosting account (Godaddy) and I would like to know where to type that code.
    I found this post to use SSH (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=723025, should I do all this process....is there something easier to set up the plugin?

    Thanks

    I not sure about GoDaddy, you might want to contact your host straight.

    The reason this plugin is difficult to setup is because it is using mysqldump which is the native mysql application to do the dump rather than use PHP to generate the dump. If you are looking for a simpler solution, you can take a look at WP-DBBackup

    Thanks Lester Chan for your explanation!
    I think I'm almost done to set it up and I would like to keep it. I need just to run that code in SSH.
    Is it something that you usually do in your hosting account or do you use any software?

    Thanks

    Yeap, you can use your hosting account to do it. Windows you can just use a software called Putty for SSH. Mac is built-in to terminal

    Thanks so much Lester!
    When I open Terminal how can I connect to my host, I just typed the ip and it said command not found..
    Should I type : ssh -1 and than the IP?

    Thanks

    technically it is just "ssh username@IP" in Putty or Mac's Terminal. You might want to read GoDaddy FAQ or contact them as I am not familiar with GoGaddy setup.
