No upload option for backup
By , for WP 4.2.5

Hello,
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.

Great tool for using when making important changes or updates.
Works fine as described, provided you read and follow the instructions.
Works also fine on multisite.

Same problesm as others

Installed it, activated it, was informed that database folder needed to be writable. Could not find any such folder in the location mentioned - or anywhere else.

Deleted immediately. Sorry, but things like this are a waste of time. They need to work at such basic levels, and anyone who persists beyond such problems is either dumb, or doesn't care if their blog goes down.

Excellent plugin to automate your backups

This is a very easy to use plugin and it works flawlessly. I have installed in on many, many websites and have never had a problem - when you set it up to automatically backup your database, it just works, and can even email you the backup if you like.

The very few people who have given this plugin a low rating have nearly all done so based on *their own inability* to understand how to install and configure a plugin, I personally believe it deserves a very high rating for these reasons:

1. It works and makes backing up your database a breeze;
2. The developer keeps it updated;
3. The developer also provides good support;
4. It's free (although I encourage all of you who use free plugins to donate to their developers - even if it's just a few bucks).

Work with Database right in WP Backend

nice plugin and huge time saver.

I was able to get rid of the message

I'm hoping it will last. I followed the instructions for removing/dragging the htaccess.txt and index.php files from the WB-DBmanager to the backup-db folder in wp-contents through my ftp manager. I renamed the htaccess.txt to .htaccess (notice the dot before htaccess). Not seeing any change at my site, I deactivated the plugin, signed out of the site, logged back on and reactivated the plugin. All systems were go at that point, and I was able to backup the database. The only thing I did differently was deactivating and reactivating. So far, so good. Oh yeah, and I updated the plugin.
