Support » Plugin: WP-DBManager » MYSQL and MYSQL DUMP paths error message

  • Resolved RHCdG

    (@rhcdg)


    Hi,

    I am currently unable to back-up my site’s database because according to the WP-DBManager plugin the paths to MYSQL and MYSQL DUMP do not exist:

    “MYSQL dump path does NOT exist. Please check your mysqldump path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.”

    “MYSQL path does NOT exist. Please check your mysqldump path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.”

    However, the plugin’s Autodetection function indicates the following paths:

    /usr/bin/mysql
    /usr/bin/mysqldump

    These paths have also been confirmed by the server administrator.

    What might be the issue, and what can I do?

    Thanks!
    Rutger

  • Most, if not all major server will use the following paths that you can put in the DB Options

    /usr/bin/mysqldump
    /usr/bin/mysql

    This will give you the green light you’re looking for

    Hi lotusms!

    Thanks for your response! Unfortunately, neither paths are found by WP-DBManager. This is precisely what the error messages report (see my original post).

    Thanks,

    The web process might not have permission to access /usr/bin/mysqldump or
    /usr/bin/mysql. Despite the error message, try giving it a go to see if it works. If it works, you can ignore the error. If it doesn’t you might need to ask your host to allow web process to access mysqldump or mysql.

    Hi Lester!

    It backed-up fine so I will ignore the error message.

    Best,
    Rutger

    lotusms’s suggest works for me.
    Thank you!
