Support » Plugin: WP-DB-Backup » Fails if site is not in /wp/ of if wordpress url site url

  • Hi

    This backup program is excellent for default installations. However, if the install is in root and not “/wp/” the backup does not proceed. For example I have one instance where the need was for “/members/wp-admin” etc. and one where the domain is mapped directly to “public_html/clientname/wp”.

    I’m sorry, my php skills are too weak to sort this but if you understand my diagnosis you can probably help. I think the problem starts around line 42 of wp-db-backup.php but cannot be sure.

    Many thanks

    Could you describe what happens when you attempt to back up? Is there an error message?

    Thanks for getting onto this so quickly.

    I have put documentation onto my site so that you can see the screenshots here:

    1) none of the core tables appear in the left side of the window. I have to select them manually
    2) when I have selected them I select ‘download to my computer’ or ’email them’ – the effect is the same.
    3) when I select ‘backup now!’ the progress bar displays but never moves and no backup is produced

    Sites are hosted by 123-reg and I have access to public_html.

    Domains are mapped to public_html/…/.. as required

    I create a directory for each client, and if I then instal wordpress to public_html/client/wp/ all works fine.

    If I install wordpress in public_html/client/ or public_html/members/ then 1 – 3 above results.

    My own site is in public_html/wp/, with wordpress url = and site url= is mapped to /wp which is why wp url and site url are different.

    Thanks again Austin
