Support » Plugin: BackWPup - WordPress Backup Plugin » Not impressed at all

  • Backed up with this plugin on AWS EC3 and it closed down my site – ‘fail’

    Now when I go to my site I get this message
    “Error establishing a database connection”

    Although others have had great success with this, I do not recommend using it.

    Hello Frank,

    can you give me some more informations. Or the log file of the backup?
    Than i hope i can see what happens.

    Hi Daniel,
    I have not been able to get back into the sites front page since this morning and had to pass the issue onto a more technical person.

    Basicly the home page says
    “Error establishing a database connection” yet the child pages work

    my setup is NginX, MySql, Varnish (no cPanel) WordPress multisite

    When I do get back in I Will send you what I can

    thanks for your email

    Did you have a phpMyAdmin installed and look if all MySQl Tables up and running?

    I had a look but can not see related table. As this is a new install I am wiping the DB and will start again – for many reasons
