    @tvleavitt: It is a simple html form with php validation, nothing fancy. What was the error that you were receiving? Do you have register_globals turned on?
    @buffy: Thats another strange error. Which directory are you changing the permissions on? You could rename the path in brvars.php and create a fresh directory. I have a feeling there is a configuration problem there somewhere. If you are confused about some of the readme instructions, email me or post on here and I will try to help.
    Peace

    LL: I just installed the latest version. However, when I go to backup_restore.php, I just get a blank page. Help!

    Cena, remember the old fix I gave you where I deleted all the comments and left the code, try that on this version as well. Namely, remove every line starting with a //or a # and remove everything in between /* and blah blah and */
    Email me with updates if you like because this thread gets lost. :-)

    LL,
    I setup the new version in the same folder (wp-backup) I had the previous version and it chokes when including the admin-header.php and admin-footer.php because it's lookin in the current folder for these files, but they are in the wp-admin folder. When I change the includes to reflect the file locations, it chokes on menu.txt, menu.php, and several others.

    @MtDew
    I put all the files in the wp-admin folder.
    When I originaly tried this hack, I thought it was deleting all the files in the backup folder and putting in new ones. So, I moved the admin files to the admin directory. Once they are in there, I haven't had a problem with them.
    However, I am guessing that the errors are in the admin header trying to point to files that are supposed to be in the same folder. So, I guess the fix would be to move the admin files to the wp-admin folder. Not a really good fix, but I'll look into it some more.

    I believe here is where the errors occur. You could either change the paths to relative to the site root or just move the Backup & Restore files to the wp-admin directory.
    in the admin-header.php file
    include('menu.php');
    in the menu.php file
    $menu = file('./menu.txt');
    my directory structure
    /blog
    /blog/wp-admin - all admin pages
    /blog/wp-backup - just for the backup files
    /blog/wp-images
    /blog/wp-includes

    And one more thing.
    If you don't want to edit the admin-footer.php file, you can add a menu item by opening up menu.txt and adding Backup & Restore to the menu list.
    level +tab +start file +tab +menu text
    10 backup_restore.php Backup & Restore
    I think I'll just suggest that in my next hack.

    Any chance the devs will incorporate the backup/restore hack into WP soon... :-?

    I'm trying to do a backup and when I click on "Backup Database" I get a message that it worked correctly, but there's no backup file in my backup folder. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've read through this thread and seen mention of a dump.php file, but can't seem to find that anywhere.
    I fear I am just not going to understand this one.

    @DaisyHead: Did you see the new upgraded version. Look at my post right above yours for the new URI. That has a much better backup engine and should work!

    Hi, I tried to install your plugin, but apparently it is no longer compatible with the upcoming Version 1.5.1 of WP.
    Do you plan updating your cool Plugin?
    cheers wol
