[Plugin: WP-DBManager] backup file has mysqldump usage message only (4 posts)

    I've installed the WP-DBManager plugin. It appears to be correctly configured. Selecting the "Backup DB" menu option shows a bunch of green messages showing configuration options are acceptable. But when I run the backup, either manually or scheduled, the content of the .sql file is the usage message for mysqldump:

    /usr/bin/mysqldump Ver 8.23 Distrib 3.23.58, for redhat-linux-gnu (i386)

    OR /usr/bin/mysqldump [OPTIONS] --databases [OPTIONS] DB1 [DB2 DB3...]
    OR /usr/bin/mysqldump [OPTIONS] --all-databases [OPTIONS]

    And that message is all that's in the file. What am I missing?

    I would recommend http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/ if you got problem using DB Manager.

    In my case this behavior was caused by option --skip-lock-tables that the plugin passes to mysqldump.
