This is a must-have plugin. I've been using it since the beginning and it still works great. Not sure why but since switching hosts there are some errors returned in the plugin during it's server check routine, however, it still works without any issues so I can't knock the plugin. Probably a setting on my vps that can make the errors go away but I'm not going to dig around when the plugin works without any issues. UPDATE: Issue went away when I switched hosts again. Sweet!
I like how you can view the database tables, empty and drop tables right from the interface, and also schedule routine email backups among other things. Plugin is easy to use and I use it often, anytime I update/install plugins or WordPress I make a backup for example. Overall, a must have part of your toolkit if you're a seasoned WordPress user or someone just starting out.
It does what it's supposed to do and is easy to configure. Nuff said.
Made me forget other tools for backing up the DB. Very well done, never yet had an issue with either backup or restoring.
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.
I'm using this plugin during years and successfully in dozens of different sites and never received an error. Just works.
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
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).
I ran the REPAIR feature and this plugin brought down my site. Bad plugin.
This is a great simple and convenient way to backup / restore wp db from within the wp dashboard
We optimized our database with this one and the site seems faster now.
