    I downloaded the WP-DBManager and installed it and it keeps asking me the following two paths:

    I host my wordpress website with GoDaddy, how can I get these two paths.

    Checking MYSQL Dump Path ...
    MYSQL dump path does NOT exist. Please check your mysqldump path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

    I recommend using an alternate plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/ if you got problems getting it to work.

    I have not be able to get it to work on Godaddy account and I have wasted lots of time with customer support and by myself trying to get the darn plugin to work.

    People that say "ignore the problem" or "I got it to work on Godaddy.com" make me ask ONE QUESTION: "Have you ever RESTORED YOUR BLOG ON GODADDY USING THIS PLUGIN?"

    I say that because I can get to to "successfully save a backup" of my blog. When I try to "restore" my blog from that backup file, Nothing but error and failure!

    The only way I can get it to save a backup is if I click the "Gzip" option. And after it does save the backup .sql file, I cannot restore the blog with that file or any file generated by this plugin anyway.

    ***** PLease note that this backup plugin works like a charm on my blogs or clients' blogs hosted on hostmonster.com and bluehost.com

    The reason I don't want to use the other backup that GamerZ (GamerZ created WP-DBManager BTW!) is recommending is because I was told by someone that really knows that the other program will only backup posts and pages but not images (and sidebars, I think). Plus I don't think the restore process is so easy. I need something easy for my clients.

    I need to get this one to work is because with WP-DBManager my clients can save their own ASS all by themselves completely without calling me in a panic! Plus WP-DBManager is so highly recommended all over the place!

    I just don't want to give up yet. If anyone has any updated information on the correct MySQL paths for this plugin on GODADDY.com, please post or let me know at

    Thanks so much!

    Sincerely,

    Hi,
    I also get the exact error about the paths.
    I'm hosted with Hawk Host and in my open_basedir it doesn't include mysql.
    But when I click on "Backup", it generates a backup sql file. I'm just not sure if it was able to backup everything in my wordpress DB.

    The end of file says, "-- Dump completed on 2010-06-20 15:28:00"

    I'm just thinking it might just be a path checking error or what.

    Backup folder exists
    Backup folder is writable

    Checking MYSQL Dump Path (/usr/bin/mysqldump) ...
    MYSQL dump path exists.

    Checking MYSQL Path (/usr/bin/mysql) ...
    MYSQL path exists.

    Checking PHP Functions (passthru(), system() and exec()) ...
    passthru() enabled.
    system() enabled.
    exec() enabled.

    Excellent. You Are Good To Go.

    Lester, instead of helping or fixing the problem, tell them to use a different plugin? Seriously? Great support there bud!

    I too have the same issue:

    Checking MYSQL Dump Path ...
    MYSQL dump path does NOT exist. Please check your mysqldump path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

    Checking MYSQL Path ...
    MYSQL path does NOT exist. Please check your mysql path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

    The backups state they are being done successfully, however, they do not contain all of the posts that exist on the site, only a portion of one of them.

    Any ideas?
