    Does GoDaddy's Managed Wordpress already do what the WP-DBManager plugin does?

    I'm having some problems with WP-DBManager being able to backup databases. I tried to fix it, but it looks like it's a technical issue that's over my head. Before I call GoDaddy support and spend more precious time trying to fix the problem, I'm wondering "Do I need the plugin now that I'm using Managed WordPress hosting?" (I just switched to Managed WP a few days ago.)

     

    Does anyone know if GoDaddy's Managed WordPress already does what WP-DBManager does?

     

    From the plugin's description on Wordpress.org:

     

    Allows you to optimize database, repair database, backup database, restore database, delete backup database, drop/empty tables and run selected queries. Supports automatic scheduling of backing up, optimizing and repairing of database.

     

    TIA,

     

    Mark

    GoDaddy Managed WordPress claims:

    https://www.godaddy.com/help/restore-your-site-9187
    "Managed WordPress® accounts offer 30 days' worth of backups for your WordPress installation's files and its database."

    WP-DBManager is good to have because you can do a backup whenever you need to before doing any updating or changes you want to make.  Plus you have access to those backups via FTP to get a copy off the server for safe keeping.  I use it on my sites and have it on auto-pilot for repairing and optimizing as well.

     

    Problems backing up generally will have to do with not having the correct paths set in Database > DB Options.  Without a specific error message or more info, double-check these settings:

     

    Path To mysqldump: /usr/bin/mysqldump

    Path To mysql: /usr/bin/mysql

     

    HTH! 😉

    Absolutely, there are plugins for that and/or you can add the provided code snippet in sidebar or footer widgets.

     

    Also, in the future, please start a new thread when you question veers off the original topic of a thread, okay?

     

    HTH! 😉
