Thank You !!
Thank You !!
I second that...
Thanks LL :)
Thanks a bunch. ^_^
Nice plugin .. gr8 work! Just one request: if somehow the backups can be sent to an e-mail address besides the ability to download them on the fly.
Fantastic script! Thank you!
Very very nice. Thanks so much!
It is a personal policy of mine to go anywhere near mysql as infrequently as possible. This is a lifesaver. Thanks.
I agree, this is a very awesome script! I have already backed up several times with this, and it works great. Now there is NO reason not to have a recent backup of your files! LL is da man! :)
I just wanted to say that this is a great script. I just tried it out on my site. Thank you for creating it.
nice script, just backed up my entire site in no time. Thanks!
Just ran into a problem with the plugin.
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 22473 bytes) in <path>/wp-admin/backupRestore.php on line 129
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 0 bytes) in Unknown on line 0
That's not a plugin error, it's PHP (server) error. If you don't have access to php.ini, try adding this line to an .htaccess file:
php_value memory_limit "16M"
laughing lizard, what great script.
i actually got it to work on my own blog fine, and use it often.
but now i am installing a blog for a friend, on a different server!, and it wont work.
i recieve the following error:
PHP Warning: fopen(e:\path\to\blog\/backup/26072004wordpress.sql): failed to open stream: Permission denied in e:\path\to\blog\blog\wp-admin\backupRestore.php on line 220 PHP Warning: fwrite(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in e:\path\to\blog\wp-admin\backupRestore.php on line 221
is this enough info, do you think you could help me?
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  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:
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wp_categories
#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?
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)
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.
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
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!
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.
