Support » Plugin: WP-DBManager » Database Backup Type: Full ?? What's "Full"?

  • shepherdjim


    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.

    I think you got the wrong plugin, this plugin backup everything and does not split into structure or full.
