Absolutely the best db plugin
By , for WP 3.8

It does what it's supposed to do and is easy to configure. Nuff said.

Awesome and powerful plugin

Made me forget other tools for backing up the DB. Very well done, never yet had an issue with either backup or restoring.

Great for backups
By , for WP 3.8

I use this pluign to keep regular backups of my WordPress database. I don't take advantage of the other features it offers, but so far I've had no problems to speak of.

Best DB Backup plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

I'm using this plugin during years and successfully in dozens of different sites and never received an error. Just works.

well I actually wanted to create a faq
By , for WP 3.8

Point is how to sweep out the warning message that was generated when I first install in host. it shows the same warning even after I have installed on a domain.

I did swept by deleting the add_acction from line no 191. hadn't msg should go away automatically. even was gone after i paste the htaccess in local folder. but again it came back on line and showing me the waring with my previous local host path.

thanks in advance

Breaks wp_posts table and makes content disappear
By ,

I had this plugin running on a client site. On the surface it works well. However, a couple of weeks ago all of the content disappeared. The template was still there, but when you attempt to go to any page, including the homepage, it returns a 404 'not found' error.

The first time this happened I restored the database using WP DB Manager. Worked fine - the content came back, everyone was happy. Then a few hours later the content disappeared again. Restored the database again, and all was good. Just to be sure though, I did a fresh install of everything - WordPress, the theme, and created a new database.

It was fine for a few days, until yesterday when the content disappeared again. After some investigation we found that the WP DB Manager plugin had broken the wp_posts table in the database. Repairing it via phpMyAdmin fixed it.

I have now uninstalled this plugin, and am searching for a more reliable one. The convenience of managing it through the WP Dashboard is great, but if it can't be trusted I think it's better to just run manual backups via phpMyAdmin (it's not that hard. (there's even a guide in the codex).
