    Sorry for the late reply. This backup was written for the 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 versions and the backups that I have performed with this script contain the data.
    Did you download the updated version from
    http://dinki.mine.nu/word/b2-img/wp_backup11.zip ?

    Thank you for your help guys. I downloaded the wp_backup11.zip and it now works a treat.

    New question: In order to get it to work, I needed to set the chmod file attributes of the backup folder to 777. Are there security implications for my site because of this?
    Thanks,
    Andy.

    Beel,
    I’ve removed the backup files from the server. Could you elaborate on your response please, as I’m not sure what you mean by create a password file. I’m not an expert on unix servers/.htaccess files etc.
    I really appreciate your help.
    Andy.

    For now, a less secure measure would be to drop an index file in the directory and then someone would need to “guess” the sql file name in order to view it.

    Or restrict access through .htaccess

    Does this still work with wp 1.2?

    but I think that menu.txt doesn’t work anymore you have to edit the menu.php

    I have implemented this updated version and nothing happens when I try to create a backup. No file is created. Any ideas on what could be causing this?
    Thanks,

    Hmm, I redownloaded the updated version and backuprestore.php is different than the one I am using. I am on a Windows/Apache setup so I don’t know if that will make a difference to you. Does your version of backuprestore have the function make_sql($table)?

    I was just wondering if there was any advantage to using this plugin rather than doing a full cPanel backup every which I currently do.

    I actually got it to work finally. I had to change my permissions. Thanks! And I’d like to know the advantage of this backup vs the Cpanel backup as well.

    Backup is backup. As I mentioned before I just kept this hack to test as I also backup using phpmyadmin. For some I guess it is a matter of convenience but I visit phpmyadmin often so it is six of one, half a dozen of the other for me.
