WP Migrate DB
Does exactly what it says (3 posts)

    I was looking for something similar to Drupal's Backup & Migrate to make it simpler to move sites from my testing environment to live sites. I still use other backup plugins for regular backing up, but this does make short work of the migration problem. I've used it on several moves with WP 2.9.x and just now with a 3.0 move. Handy tool. I remove it from the live sites, though.

    Nine months later and this is still a mainstay. I used Backup Buddy for a while on large migrations, then found myself coming back to this, when BB couldn't handle multisite installs. (To use this with multisite, remove the http:// in both urls on the export panel. Works a treat.) It's also wonderful for testing maintenance patches: I can quickly grab my client's current DB and install it on my local copy before installing any patches or upgrades, so I never have to worry about the production site being "different" from my test env.

    Thank you Brad for making my life easier.

    Its true, I had an issue with last site but turns out something else was conflicting.

    Backup Buddy is insecure as well, it does not create a .htaccess file to block people from browsing your backups direct after Google indexes them, try Googleing this term:

    /wp-content/uploads/backupbuddy_backups

    You will find a bunch of peoples sites with SQL and config files = Dodgy for a premium plugin, it wont even allow you to move the backup file location, putting it in uploads is just asking for trouble.
