WP Migrate DB
[resolved] Doesn't save on computer (5 posts)

    Hello, I used to be very happy with your plugin but since yesterday I try to export db and instead of saving to my computer it saves on uploads of the site.

    Why does this happen? Firefox goes on forever and I don't know when export is completed.

    Please help.

    Do you have a download manager Firefox extension installed? See FAQ about that: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-migrate-db/faq/

    Hello Brad, I haven't and the weird thing is that to a demo site I have almost identical to the live site, it works fine. So it is not a browser issue.

    The difference between 2 databases is that the one is 2.50mb and the other is 5.48mb. At first place it creates a file on uploads in both sites. However on demo site, as soon as it is finished it gives you the ability to download to computer and file is removed from uploads. On live site, the file remains on uploads and browser keeps running forever although the file is completed.

    Hope I have helped.

    May be there is a problem on bigger files.

    @dunies Hmm, that's a strange one. Have you tried unchecking the checkbox to save as file to your computer? You should be provided with a link to download the file after the migration runs. What happens when you try download the file?
