Database Backup Type: Full ?? What's "Full"?
I’ve noticed that my backup options include:
Database Backup Type: Full (Structure and Data)
and I’m wondering what exactly is included in “Structure and Data”.
It’s always been my understanding that if I really wanted to protect myself from a total collapse (GoDaddy losing my shared server for instance) I should use wp-DBmanager to backup the database and then download/FTP a copy of the entire wp-content subdir to my hard drive.
In the even of a total disaster I would upload the contents of the wp-content folder and re-install (not really sure how) the latest copy of the mySQL db that the plugin had created.
How am I doing?
FYI — This plugin is the first one I install on a new WP install. I just processed a $5 donation thru PayPal …wish it could be more but all my web work is hobby/community studd and there’s no $$ involved.
