By , for WP 2.6.3

Hii
I have implemented wp-DB Manager plugin on localhost.It is giving an error like mysqldump path, mysql path saying path doesn't exist.

Here is the path which i get on istalling the plugin:
c:/wamp/bin/mysql/mysql5.5.8bin/mysqldump.exe
c:/wamp/bin/mysql/mysql5.5.8bin/mysql.exe

I am not able to back up the database due to invalid path existence. please help me out.

Moving a file that doesn't exist?
By , for WP 3.6.1

It wants me to move .htaccess to another folder because my back ups may be public. There is only one problem The file doesn't exist in the directory it is insisting the file is in.

I deleted the plug in. I'll find something else.

I just screwed my site an hour ago and on the verge of contacting my host and I remembered I can easily restored database created from this plugin. And yeah, it did. Merci!

A must have
By , for WP 3.6

I've used this plugin for years. Never had any problems. Easy to set up, easy to use. Gives you an important extra security. It also allow you to do serious experiments since you can easily backup your database and equally easily restore it back.
Just hope Lester Chan will continue his maintenance.
Thanks

Simple, Convenient and Flawless

This plugin works as told by author. It is easy to set up and apart from one small one-time hassle(moving .htaccess file), everything is great.

Won't Back Up
By , for WP 3.5.2

After figuring out the database paths for Godaddy and getting green ready to back up, the first backup didn't backup correctly and subsequent attempts resulted in "could not back up the database" despite the plugin seeing all the tables in the database. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find any troubleshooting info via Google and my password doesn't have a $ character as one thread suggests may be the problem. This plugin is no longer supported by the author so I removed it after tinkering with it a couple hours.
