How does malware get into the backups?
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have used this plugin for a long time. Recently I installed the Wordfence Security plugin also. However the scans indicate that there are several malicious urls in the database backups of WP DBmanager. I definitely did not put them on my site, and they only show up in the db backups. So I suspect that those malicious files somehow find their way into the db backups via some vulnerability. If I ever had to reinstall the database, I imagine I would have some nasty links on my site. Does anyone have any experience with this issue?

Easy and understandable

It just works! Basic backup and mail, cleanup and drop old unuseful stuff if an extnsion doesnt do its job after uninstall. Works fine with bigger installations like datingsites, buddypress communities m.m.

passthru() system() exec() is disabled
By , for WP 3.5.1

Hello everyone :),

I have a security problem with this plugin.

As far as I know and as I have found on the internet these functions may be a malicious and potential opportunities for a hacker attack. So my hosting provider of security reasons disabled.

Can someone help me with this, the plugin is so good

Thank you,

[Resolved] annoying .htaccess warning, when file is not even present
By , for WP 3.5.1

I could not get a warning to stop showing up at the top of my plugins admin page, telling me my backup folder might be visible to the public and to move an .htaccess file from one folder to another to not let this happen. There is no .htaccess file in the folder it says I need to move it from, and moving an htsccess.txt file made no difference.

Excellent Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Excellent Plugin, it works as stated by the developer. I have been running this plugin on some of my sites now for quite sometime. I also run it on my test site and it works great. Even though it has not been updated for sometime it still works great and with WordPress 3.5.1.

Thank you

An Absolutely Essential Plug-in

It's saved my bacon more than once - the ability to backup your database automatically and restore an older version at the click of a button is simply invaluable.

Easy way to drop tables

I use this plugin do drop unnecessary tables. I liked it enough to blog about it: Clean up a WordPress database with the WP-DBManager plugin.
