WordPress Backup to Dropbox
[resolved] Files uploaded, database dump not (4 posts)

    Hi, I can's seem to find where the plugin stores database dump.

    In my Dropbox folder (which is in a subfolder of wpb2d) I can see all the files, but no database. Is this a bug or does it get stored somewhere else?

    Thanks for the plugin, btw! :)

    The database dump will be stored within 'wp-content/backups' inside the your defined subfolder, if any, within the Dropbox app folder.

    Hi Michael,
    yesterday I installed your plugin and all seems working great: all files were uploaded to my Dropbox.

    The database backups, instead, weren't correctly dumped. In my Dropbox folder Apps/wpb2d/wp-content/backups I see these files:

    [db-name]-plugins.sql
    wpb2d-backup-log.txt

    The [db-name]-core.sql is missing.

    The sql file contains only some db-dump comments and these lines:

    SET SQL_MODE="NO_AUTO_VALUE_ON_ZERO";
    CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS [db-name];
    USE [db-name];

    What should I do to resolve?

    P.S.
    I took a look at my files and folders via FTP and the wp-content/backups folder contains only a index.php and wpb2d-backup-log.txt files.

    @Michael:

    Oh, OK, but the Settings page says:

    Please Note: Your SQL dump file will always be backed up regardless of what is selected below.

    But I still need to select the (empty) folder "wp-content/backups" in order to have SQL backups?
