    Hi,
    I have set up the BackUpWordPress on my multisite install. The backups of the site files work.
    However I can’t seem to find the sql dump file.
    I have defined the dump path in my config file define( 'HMBKP_MYSQLDUMP_PATH', 'C:/inetpub/wwwroot/mysite/wp-content/backups' ); In the advanced options of the plugin it recognises that that line of code exsists, as it has a tick next to it.
    I have also looked in the zip files but I can’t seem to find them.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi Rich,

    The HMBKP_MYSQLDUMP_PATH isn’t the path that the dump file should be saved to, it’s the path to your mysqldump executable.

    Your SQL file is saved inside the backup zip.

    Hi Tom,
    Thanks for replying.

    Hhhhmmm ok… if thats the case then this SQL dump file isn’t being created.
    SO I’ll need to find the path to the executable and place that in there instead.

    I added that code to the wp-config, because the file wasnt’ listed before.

    Any ideas as to why it wouldn’t be there?

    thanks

    Your mysqldump path should be automatically detected.

    If it isn’t then the backups will still work, they will just be slightly slower as the plugin will fall back to using a PHP library instead of the shell command.

    Hi Rich,

    The issue whereby the mysql dump file was not added to the backup in some cases has been fixed in version 1.3.2.

    Hi Tom,

    Brilliant!
    Tested it and it works!

    Thanks for letting me know!
