WordPress Backup Database (5 posts)

    Okay, so I host my wordpress in 000webhost.com , now, as for a free hosting it rocks, however, it will never be as reliable as paid one. You see, sometimes when I try to load up my site it just says "error establishing database connection" in big font. I assume it is out because of MySQL being offline or something like that. Back in a day I remember guys in php forums talking about something like saving data simply in files, no MySQL. I want to ask if there is some sort of wordpress plugin, that kind of creates backup "generator" database file directly in FTP so it could use it in case wordpress finds that MySQL is broken down again? Please, don't say any useless s*** like "get paid hosting" or whatever, I really can't afford it in the moment.

  2. I use this plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/
    I set it so that it emails me a copy of my database once a week.

    You may also want to look at Vault Press and safeguard your entire website.

    Thanks for reply, but will this actually work when MySQL is off again, will my site function properly as if nothing is happening?

    You could try looking at some of the caching plugins.
