Support » Fixing WordPress » Which tables to backup with Fantastico installation?

    Hello guys, I’m new on wordpress, indeed I’m still testing it.

    I’m using Fantastico to install it, and now I was testing backup and restore. But once I retored database (all tables), I’m not able to login again. For the test, I used different subdomains, folders and admin logins.

    It seems database restoration cracked login info. The strange thing is that neither old login/pass neither new login pass works…

    So I’d like to know, which tables are needed to backup and which ones I should let under Fantastico control?

    tnx

  • All tables are needed for backup.
    You may want to explain this:

    What exactly did you do? My guess is you messed up everything. No need for “smart” tricks, just follow the instructions:
    Backing_Up_Your_Database
    Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup

    Hello moshu.

    To test if restore was working, I tried to restore on a new installation, as if I had transfered my blog from one domain to another one.

    This may seem like a strange question, but are you using Firefox? Try logging in with a different browser if you are.

    Also, moshu is correct: ALL tables need to be backed up, ideally with phpadmin.

    I tried to restore on a new installation,

    That goes under the title Moving_WordPress and involves changing the site_url and home values in the DB, so no, it does NOT work as “backup/restore test”. I told you in my first post: don’t try tricks, just follow the instructions.

    tnx moshu, I hope I had found that link before 😀

    and I was testing with Firefox on my host WinXP and on IE over a virtual machine
