    Skippy, will this work on any server?

    It ought to work on any server, but the variety of possible server configurations makes it hard for me to offer any definitive answer.

    Lots of people have reported that it works for them. Two people have reported PHP errors. I am waiting on additional information from both of them to determine what caused those errors.

    korereactor: Looking at the code to skippy’s plugin I suspect you problem is that you have a table in you database with no rows.

    Looking at your comments feed you have not had any comments on your site yet :(.

    I suspect that if you add a comment to one of your posts the backup will work fine. 🙂

    Yea, since I don’t use links, that’s probably an issue as well. I’ll try some things out…

    Yep, that’s it. Added a comment and a link and blamo! Works like a champ! Thanks!

    Well, now I have a problem with the wp-cron and email. It’s all setup, however, I’m not getting any emails and nothing is happening at the scheduled times. Has anyone got the cron plugin to work with this?

    This will work great for the WordPress Backup Week coming soon!

    Just want to check on this before I do anything stupid…i get the message: WARNING: Your backup directory is NOT writable!
    /home/content/c/h/e/cherylkemp/html/blog/wp-content/backup/

    If I email or download the database this shouldn’t be a problem???

    CHMOD the directory to 777 (change it’s permissions)

    And it’s not a problem to download / email.

    oncidium: as long as your database is comparatively small (under, say, 2 megs) you should be okay. The currently available version of wp-db-backup keeps the whole backup in memory.

    A new version (due very very soon) will spool the backup table by table to a file in the /wp-content/backup directory. This file will be deleted after it is mailed to you.

    It’s probably best to grant write permission to your backup directory now, so that you’re ready for the new version.

    Thanks for the response, Skippy. Can you tell me how to grant write permission? I thought of that before I wrote my original post, but I don’t know how to do it.
