Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » encoded values in backup sql file

  • Resolved triplebit


    In all of my sites the database backup file is different from the direct backup file that I get from phpmyadmin.
    Editing these files with text editor i see that With backwpup some items are different as if they are encoded(like siteurl);
    Does anyone know why?
    Can I cause the backwpup sql file be the same?

  • Hi @triplebit, this encoding is intentional to protect any values that might be binary encoded. It’ll import into your database perfectly fine. If you like, you can set up a test database, and try importing the SQL file to test whether it imports properly for you.

    Thanks Mr. Olivares
    I want to be able to edit the sql file so I need somehow to restore it to its original values. Is it possible and how?

    By the way I think its a great plugin and it rescued me a few times…

    I though on a some workaround, please refer if you can.
    Before editing I can import to any database and than export it with phpmyadmin.
    The exported file should be decoded.
    Is that right?

    Yes that’s correct.

    In the next release we’ll limit the columns that get encoded so it’s only binary-type columns.

    I’m glad this could get resolved. 🙂
