    Re: step 7 of the codex directions: http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database

    It says to leave the boxes in the data section unticked. The implication is that we will find the boxes unticked by default and indeed, in other places in the codex where this sort of direction is given, boxes are always already unticked by default.

    Here, however, "Use hexidecimal for binary.." is ticked. Should it be left as is, or should it be unticked?

    I usually do a backup both ways, but which is correct?

    Wow! I forgot about this until doing another backup. No answers, but I still wonder.

    Also, I find the "complete inserts" and "extended inserts" boxes ticked by default. Is this correct?

    Easier yet, just use this...


    I backup after every time I put in a new post. I just use the email it function. Works great!

    Maybe I'll try this plugin again. I had it a while ago, but it caused trouble that I could not resolve, or remember now.
