Suggestions as a developer tool

  • Hi
    Ive been using DBM for a very long time and I cant be without it, specially when developing diffrent installs. To use this plugin as a rollback-tool, it would be nice to provide a custom name for the backup or prefix manually.

    – To more easy let me know whats “in it”

    Second, on the setting page, when set to “auto”, the backup path also need this feauture to manually search for it. I often clone my installs and move them from localhost to the live server, but the old path to backup dir remains.

    Third, a kind of cleanup to default WP install – totally remove all added tables and meta stuff. I sometimes have leftovers even if I restore from a clean setup / The version when installing WP and DB (WP D is always the first plugin/ first thing I do after a new WP install)

    Thanks for this excellent plugin

    — Good point

    — This is a little tough because it is not really possible to keep track of what rows in wp_options belongs to plugin. Tables is easy to detect since WP comes with a fix table

    Hi,

    The third, about restoring, is it not possible to wipe out the plugins? / Except the db manager itselfs. I just wanna have a “Just installed version of Worpress + dbmanager” with no ghosts or shadows. OR just the WP, and re install / activate db manager if it is more plain solution.

    Im not a db person, but a developer of everything else… Thats why this tool is so handy for “my kind of guy”.

    Thanks for considering my suggestions.

    yea because plugins do create a few entries in wp_options table and sometimes even uses its own table. If it uses its own table it is easy to wipe. I can check which one is not an official table from WP because WP comes with a fixed number of tables.

    But for the entries created in wp_options itself, it is tough because some of it might be in used by other active plugins.

    Merry Xmas =)
