    Hi, i was wondering why DB backup size created by the plugin is only 709KB. while dump.sql created by the official mysqldump –add-drop-table -h mysql_hostserver -u mysql_username -p mysql_databasename
    is 7.8 MB.
    Another question is it possible that password is not required while the backup is created via the plugin, while it is using mysqldump
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, this could be related to the way the file is compressed via the plugin.

    In regards to your second question, yes it is possible. This is how this plugin works.

    Hi, thanks a lot.
    The second issue raises an eyebrow on the possibility that hackers could do the same if password is not required to access the database. )

    Hi @warrior7089,

    The best thing to do is to verify whether the aiowps backup file contains all of the tables for your WordPress installation. To do that, simply grab the backup zip file and from your PC open the “sql” file contained inside of it. Then count the number of “CREATE TABLE” commands for the tables inside that file. These should match exactly the number of tables in your WordPress system shown in your PHPMyAdmin interface.

    is it possible that password is not required while the backup is created via the plugin, while it is using mysqldump

    I don’t quite understand your question. Are you asking if someone can access your admin system without a password whilst the backup is occurring? If so, then the answer is no. I also encourage you to verify this by doing your own test.

    Thanks a lot for clarifications!

    @warrior7089, in regards to my reply above.

    My answer was wrong and that is because I did not understand your question and @wpsolutions reply above make total sense. I should have asked you further to explain your question before replying.

    My apologies.
