    Having just upgraded to v2.0 from 1.5.2 on a test site - before I do it on a real site - I was expecting to find a database backup plugin as mentioned in the official blurb on features and benefits. There isn't one. Could someone tell me why not and if not where do I get one?

    It's in there, but if you did an upgrade, you may NOT have overwritten your wp-content directory. If you dive into the newly-downloaded wordpress/wp-content/plugins you'll find a file called wp-db-backup.php. Upload it to your plugins directory and activate it, and you're set.

    That'll be it. Thanks.
