Support » Plugins and Hacks » WordPress 1.2 One Click Backup

  • A new version of the backup scripts for WordPress 1.2 Mingus is now available. This has been tested with 1.2 Mingus and the instructions have been updated along with some of the code.
    Some of the new and original features are:

    • One click backup of the WordPress MySql database which can be then downloaded from your browser without the use of any FTP client.
    • One click backup of all the files inside your WordPress folder which can then be downloaded from your browser.
    • Date coded backup named for sql files and zipped WordPress files.
    • Better checking of user level. This menu is only available to users with level 10 (or admin) and every backup/restore script has user checking built in to prevent un authorized usage of this tool.
    • One click restore of database (if you have a Linux server)
    • More streamlined SQL creation resulting in faster backups and cleaner dumps.

    Please download the zip file from:

  • You must have missed a step. I would go through the install one more time. Please let me know if it still does not work.

    its been solved, it was a permission problem. eventho the permissions looked like they were okay [777] in fact they were not and i had to ask the isp to set them [dont ask…]. controlfreaks. anywho. its running smoothe as buttah now and cheerz a bunch!

    Absolutely lovely! Been hoping for something like this for a while. Thanks!

    Sweet! Works like a charm (Thanx piecoplastic for the permissions note)

    Wondering if there’s anybody out there who can help me with this script. I have a complete .sql and .tar backup of my site from a few days ago. The server crashed, so I rebuilt a new linux box with the same hostname, IP, etc. Was able to untar and restore the files, but not the SQL file. Have tried with the backup script as well as phpMyAdmin (which gives an error:
    Error
    SQL-query :

    ——————————————————- —


    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wp_categories
    MySQL said:
    #1064 – You have an error in your SQL syntax near ‘———————————————————


    DROP TABLE ‘ at line 2
    Anybody have any ideas on how to restore the .sql file from the script?

    Use phpmyadmin.
    Go to your database.
    Check all tables and drop them
    Now click SQL at the top
    Use the browse button to locate the sql file (I’m assuming you have downloaded it to your machine and copied it so you are working off a copy)
    Click Go.
    Wander off and make a coffee
    Come back and all should be good.

    Thanks – that worked. It turns out that my SQL data file was larger than the limit allowed for upload (Max: 2,048KB), so I deleted several of the posts from the SQL file and then it seemed to accept it.

    Cool 🙂
    What you can do in the future is use phpmyadmin to export a gzipped file, then import that instead.
    I was pondering a tutorial on this if anyone is interested …….

    Hi, and thanks for a great plugin! I really appreciate it.
    But I have a problem:
    – Backup Database works fine, but
    – Backup WordPress Files gives me this error:
    Warning: ini_set, getrusage, mysql_list_dbs, get_current_user, set_time_limit, getmyuid, getmypid, dl, leak, chgrp() has been disabled for security reasons in /data/members/paid/s/p/spaab.se/htdocs/www/wp/wp-admin/PEAR.php on line 49
    Any ideas?

    If it’s a security issue, then your host needs to give you the info to sort it.

    I tried PHPMyAdmin, but it didn’t work well, maybe due to the PHP configuration or MySQL version on hosting server.
    But this tool deal with it very well. Thanks.

    This is incredibly awesome. Hope the team adds this one as a ‘primary feature’ in the coming versions. A must have. Thanks a ton, LaughingLizard!

    Great tool.
    Many thanks

    Very nice addition to an already useful plugin. I just took about 3 minutes, and this was working great. Thanks for the info!

    I’m moving hosts, and have the vanilla WP install done, and this program moved into its proper place. I get a message that the restore was successful, but I still only have the default vanilla install on my front page.
    help!
