I needed help in testing WP-DBManager 2.11 automatic backup feature. This feature works on this site but it can’t email a backup database to my email address because simply the backup file is too big (around 10MB). For those users which have a smaller database, I need help from you guys in testing this particular feature of the automatic backup.
Here is the changelog for WP-DBManager 2.11:
Version 2.11 (01-06-2007)
- NEW: Sort Database Backup Files By Date In Descending Order
- NEW: Added Repair Database Feature
- NEW: Automatic Scheduling Of Backing Up And Optimizing Of Database
If you found and bugs, please do post it in the support forums. Thank you.

I’m going to be testing this out. 😀 Thanks…
Me too! 😀 I’m looking at the options page now, and was wondering – does one put ‘0.2’days or do the numbers have to be in units?
it has to be in units. =D Maybe I should include that instruction in
Thanks for the clarification 😀 I was hoping it might be possible to put maybe twice a day or something (since I’m not sure if a daily backup is sufficient since uh… I’m a little paranoid about losing data :p) There’s another plugin I was using before this new auto-backup function came along… called “WordPress database backup” http://www.ilfilosofo.com/blog/wp-db-backup (hope you don’t mind me posting it here) – which allows a file sent every hour! It’s too frequent for me really, but at the same time it’s still better than just once a week or something 🙂
okie I will take note of it, I think I know what to do, I will have the 2 fields, one to fill in the number and the other to fill in “hours,days,weeks,months” how about that? i don’t think we need minutes and years here.
Wow, that would be amazing actually! 😀 Even better than the ‘WDB’ I mentioned earlier! ^^ Perhaps the second field could be a dropdown? Then there won’t be a problem with possible typos?
I absolutely agree that we don’t need minutes and years… that would be OTT ^^
it is done =D, it is a drop down field. Interested in testing it?
Just overwrite dbmanager.php with this http://dev.wp-plugins.org/browser/wp-dbmanager/trunk/dbmanager/dbmanager.php?format=raw
!! 😀 Thanks! I’ve just tested it and its definitely backing up the file to the designated folder on an hourly basis! ^^ However, each backup file is about 10mbs, so it’s not being sent in an email. Is it possible for the plugin to gzip the file at all? If I send manually backup the file using gzip, it’s around 2mb in size. 🙂
Also: Sorry to keep posting in this thread – would you prefer me to open a thread in the forum?
Thanks for your patience! 😀
gzip, if I got the time, I will make it an option to gzip it, not an issue here. Nah comments is ok as long it is not support questions
Hehe thanks 😀 I doubt you’ll have many support questions for this, as it’s such a great plugin! 🙂 works right out of the box ^^
oh btw, you can do the same thing as above, I have added gzip.
I keep starting my posts with thanks! 🙂 I’m happy to say that the file was emailed without any problem, the only small thing being that the file didn’t have any file extension, so it arrived as an attachment called ‘noname’, which I had to rename as .gz and then label the file within as .sql. I thought it might be due to gmail being funny, but when I try the manual db backup email function, it does label the file (and extension) with no problems 😀
—For your reference, this is what I received in my email from the automatically emailed backup:
Website Name: NAME OF MY WEBSITE
Website URL: URL OF MY WESBITE
Backup File Name: 1178968734_-_DATABASE NAME.sql.gz
Backup File Date: Saturday, 12th May 2007 @ 11:18
Backup File Size: 2.2 MB
NAME OF MY WEBSITE Administrator
URL OF MY WEBSITE
Thank you again for your patience 🙂 I was also wondering… with regards to Paypal donations and such, is there an option to donate a smaller amount if possible? I’m but a poor student but I’d very much like to donate some money for all your help!
Mosey: thank you, I am also a student =D. Regarding the donation, if you really insists it is possible, just go to paypal and send money to email@example.com =)
Hi regarding the noname file issue, can u try to do the same thing, overwrite dbmanager.php with the URL above, I think I fixed it
It works brilliantly! 😀 Thank you again for your help ^^ I’m logged into Paypal at the moment, so hopefully you’ll receive something soon. I’m afraid it’s not very much, but hopefully it’s enough to show my appreciation 🙂
yea, i received it. Thank you so much =) It is the thought that counts
i hope it can backup large database too…
it can, but I don’t think it can mail large database to your email account because of your host email settings.
Many thanks for your great plug-in ..
Greetings from Italy
thanks Romano =)
