    WordPress 2.0 Plugin: WP-DBManager 2.00 - download
    Manages your WordPress database. Allows you to optimize database, backup database, restore database, delete backup database and run selected queries.

    I have released wp-dbmanager to be compatible with WP 2.0.

    If there are any bugs/errors, please let me know, gamerz84 AT hotmail DOT com

    Thanks so much for the support guys!

    Thanks, GamerZ - just installed it on v2, but once I click the 'Database' link in the admin panel, the whole admin panel navigation is doubled, so that there are two admin panel navigations now. I have to click another admin link to get the additional navigation menu removed again.

    Any idea?

    Nope, clearing the cache did not help ... :( Tried it in both IE and FF - no luck.

    wierd, maybe you delete the file, re-download and try again? because it really works fine on my clean installation wordpress site.

    UPDATE: Works perfectly for me. =) Just uploaded the files and made that "wp-backup-db" directory in the root, 777 and activated the plugin. Everything went smooth.. =) Another great plugin made by GamerZ lol!!

    I'm going to try it once on my Blog and see what it does for me... =)

    Thanks for the great plugin! I could not, for the life of me, get the one included in 2.0 to work. This one installed without a hitch! Great work.

    I could not, for the life of me, get the [WP-DB-Backup plugin] included in 2.0 to work.

    As detailed in The Plugin Compatibility List, you must make the /wp-content/ directory writable (CHMOD 777). This will also enable WordPress v2.0's cache feature.

    MacManx: Except when that doesn't work. (Sorry...I'm starting to get borderline cranky on this issue.) I don't know if it's a combination of other factors but changing the rights to wp-content in my case never worked and after days of going back and forth with it I hope to never have to think about it again.

    Others: If you have the same problem I had with the included plugin, you might be as lucky as I to have instant success with this plugin instead.

    Getting this error when installed and trying to back up:

    @GamerZ: the additional admin menu bar disappears once I click one of the Backup plugin features. So, only the mainpage of the plugin has a double admin menu bar.

    :)

    Everything else works brilliant here.

    Thanks for such a great plugin! I got used to it with v1.5 of WP, too.

    Servant, have you checked the directory after setting it 777 to see if it went back to its previous value? Some hosting providers do not allow permissions settings as open as 777, which is yet another problem with that requirement.

    totalidea: hmm that is trickey, because there is no code that added in the admin menu on my plugin. Hmm, maybe you can email me a temp access to the admin panel, then i can take a look at it.

    ian2: you can use wp-dbmanager to backup because your server has disable passthru, you can use the default one included in the WP 2.0

    Sweet plugin man. I just installed it, and have only created a backup of my WP DB, but I love it already. It makes it so easy. Kudos to you.

    GamerZ,

    Is the restore database feature of your plugin make moving between hosts easier? What I wanna do is backup a database from one host, change url reference in it, upload to a new host then restore it to a new installation (manual installation of 1.5.2) at the new host.

    Where do I get a copy of your plugin for 1.5.2, don't wanna try 2.0 yet too scary reading some adverse comments about it.

    DBManager for WP 1.5.2: http://www.lesterchan.net/others/downloads/wp-dbmanager.zip

    You can just backup, download to disk and then restore the database in youre new host.

    Cheers

    That is you are using windows version of mysql, I cant seem to know how to get the mysql path in windows. I think the wp-admin directory of WP will do.

    GamerZ, thanks got your files for 1.5.2. I presume I have to change all reference of url in the backup before restoring elsewhere at new hosting with different url, right?

    I'll give it a try anyway.

    GamerZ,

    Got error "Database On 'Thursday, 1st January 1970 @ 00:00' Failed To Restore"

    The file is 678k, not large I guess. Backup downloaded and have url references all changed to suit new hosting. It got a funny date as you can see above. Why has it failed?

    Any clues, please help?
