I recently had an issue with my Database and i had been using this plugin assuming that it had been creating proper database backups for my website. When I went to go restore from the file I got errors, so upon checking the SQL file I found that it's not saving the database at all but instead:
/usr/bin/mysqldump Ver 8.23 Distrib 3.23.58, for redhat-linux-gnu (i386) By Igor Romanenko, Monty, Jani & Sinisa This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. This is free software, and you are welcome to modify and redistribute it under the GPL license Dumping definition and data mysql database or table Usage: /usr/bin/mysqldump [OPTIONS] database [tables] OR /usr/bin/mysqldump [OPTIONS] --databases [OPTIONS] DB1 [DB2 DB3...] OR /usr/bin/mysqldump [OPTIONS] --all-databases [OPTIONS]
There's more, but you get the idea.
Is there an alternative to WP-DBManager or can someone help me figure out why this is being output instead of my DB, I've already lost 2 months worth of Data, would prefer not to have to lose any more.
Database Type MYSQL
Database Version v5.0.91-log
