A Must-Have Plugin
By , for WP 4.5.3

Been using this since forever. Works flawlessly.

A Must-Have Plugin. Period. Thank you so very much, Lester Chan!

Fixed my issues with no muss no fuss
By , for WP 4.5.3

Thanks for this awesome plugin. I tried a bunch of other database tool oriented plugins and none of them fixed the table I needed repaired. In no time at all WP-DBManager fixed that table, optimized the database and everything is running smoothly now!

I would give this ten stars if I could!

Simply Awesome!

Very useful tool

Thank you to the author for this lovely little tool, and for keeping it maintained.

Stellar, by experience not from knowledge. Set and forget.

I don't know a thing about databases. Maybe what I attribute to this plugin is not factual. I do know how to destroy a database.

In the past year or more, since having installed this plugin, my insane MultiSite network remains stable and viable. I have had no nightmare scenarios, no mystery site or network-wide threatening crisis, no epic or any disintegration, no site rebuilds. Ask my host tech support how miraculous that is.

Prior to using this plugin I would not have been able to have the complex MultiSite I have now. I have tried far less than this current install contains only to watch is slowly break apart. I would watch and count the months before my sites began to drag and disintegrate - literally start to break apart functionally and visually. They died doing far far far less than I have had going now. Yes, the root cause was surely from heavy plugin use - my stuff is worthless without them. I am insanely heavy with plugins, 250+ - not all activated, page builders, functions and configurations, cross posting internal and external, internetwork connections and functions, auto-importing, media - images, 500+ PDFs in a doc library system, bbPress site, BuddyPress site, online exams puzzles quizzes, lots of plugin generated things that can collide and crash. And typically do so.

I must attribute my current MultiSite's unusual longevity to this plugin.

I have tried various plugins for site health over the years. It's difficult when you know very little technical, and dangerous. Lessons learned. For some time now the other plugins I add generally just make backend messes. I use Comet Cache - the only cache plugin I will use, otherwise, I do not use optimizers, security/optimizers, no other serious or back end stuff. I've had plenty of those to instantly and negatively impact my sites or cause scary things start to happen.

Thank you to the developer for your hard work. This has been an important part of my success.

Thousands checkbox impractical

Thousands checkbox impractical. What happened to select all? Where is it?

The most reliable, easy-to-use backup manager.
By , for WP 4.4.2

I've used WP-DBManager for over a year now. It's been consistent, bug-free, and insanely fast for quick restores of a SQL database. This is one of the primary plugins that I install on every WP build. Thanks for a spectacular free plugin!

No upload option for backup
By , for WP 4.2.5

I installed the plugin through wp dashboard and then I checked the plugin folder on cpanel, I noticed backup-db folder was already created with the .htaccess file and index file inside of it.
My questions are:
1. Is that all with the installation?
2. How can I upload the backup that has been sent by email, because I did not see an upload button in the Database plugin.

Thank you, really seems like a great plugin.
