MySQL Path does not exist (3 posts)

    I have changed my web to an VPS server and i'm having problems with WP-DBManager. Fist of all i was changing the directories of the backup, and the MySQL Path and the MySQL dump path are the same in my server /usr/bin.

    I have seen the directory and the mysql executable and the dump. The plugin says me that these executables no exist. But if i press backup db and the process finish well.

    I have seen in Internet that there is not possible to detect certainly the access to those files.

    I don't mind if the red message apears, but i have noted that if the message read apears the plugin doesn't run the scheduled works.

    Thanks for all

    Yes i have seen this thread but i don't want to add /usr/bin to the openbase dir because i think that applications can access and write to /usr/bin can be a risk for the server because /usr/bin has writing permissions.

    So, if without put this the WPDB-Manager can do the backup i preffer left the open_base_dir as now and see the red messages.

    So i think the method to know if this executables are accessibles is bad because in my case i see the error message but if i do a backup the backup finish correctly.
