[Plugin: WP-DB-Backup] Loads blog homepage, rather than backing up

  • Running WP-DB-Backup v2.2.2, the plugin still performs the scheduled backups daily, as set, but any attempt at performing a manual backup, or changing the scheduled backup settings, to add tables created since the scheduled backup was last modified results in the browser loading the blog homepage, with no changes to the settings or manual backups performed.

    WP versions tested: 2.8.2, 2.8.6 (same site, prior to and after upgrade)

    Fault confirmed in:
    FireFox 3.5.5
    Safari 4.0.3 (5531.9)

    Plugin settings URL path: /wp-admin/tools.php?page=wp-db-backup

  • Can you explain what you mean by “loading the blog homepage”?

    Do you mean the contents of the home page appear in the main body of the admin page?

    Or do you mean that your browser is redirected to to the home page, so that you no longer see the wp-admin URL in your browser but instead the URL of your home page?

    Are you logged in as an admin?

    Have you activated any other plugins recently?

    The latter.

    Are you logged in as an admin?

    Yes.

    Have you activated any other plugins recently?

    It was the result of a conflict with WP-Firewall.

    I was able to identify it via the ‘Conflict Catcher‘ method of turning off half my plugins, then seeing if the problem still occurred, and then systematically repeating, halving the number of plugins each test iteration.

    Whitelisting *wp-admin/edit.php* and *wp-admin/tools.php*, as described here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/310508?replies=3 did the trick, eliminating the need to disable Firewall whenever I need to manually backup or make a scheduled backup settings change.
