  1. Click the Tools or Manage menu in your WordPress admin area.
  2. Click the Backup sub-menu.

  3. The plugin will look for other tables in the same database. You may elect to include other tables in the backup.
    ** NOTE **
    Including other tables in your backup may substantially increase the size of the backup file!
    This may prevent you from emailing the backup file because it’s too big.

  4. Select how you’d like the backup to be delivered:

* Download to your computer : this will send the backup file to your browser to be downloaded
* Email : this will email the backup file to the address you specify

  1. Click «Backup!» and your database backup will be delivered to you.

The filename of the backup file will be of the form
DB = the name of your WordPress database, as defined in wp-config.php
prefix = the table prefix for this WordPress blog, as defined in wp-config.php
date = CCYYmmdd_B format: 20050711_039
the «B» is the internet «Swatch» time.
See the PHP date() function for details.

When having the database backup emailed or sent to your browser for immediate download, the backup file will be deleted from the server when the transfer is finished.


If you are using WordPress version 2.1 or newer, you can schedule automated backups to be sent to the email address
of your choice.

  1. Extrae la carpeta wp-db-backup/ en /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activa el plugin en Escritorio -> Plugins
  3. El plugin intentará crear una carpeta /wp-content/backup-*/ dentro de tu directorio de WordPress.
  4. You may need to make /wp-content writable (at least temporarily) for it to create this directory.
    For example:
    $ cd /wordpress/
    $ chgrp www-data wp-content (where «www-data» is the group your FTP client uses)
    $ chmod g+w wp-content

¿Cómo restauro mi base de datos desde una copia de seguridad?

Briefly, use phpMyAdmin, which is included with most hosting control panels. More details and links to further explanations are here.

Mi copia de seguridad se detuvo o no se completó.

If you edit the text of wp-db-backup.php in a text editor like Notepad, you’ll see around line 50 the following:

* and increase MOD_EVASIVE_DELAY
* if the backup stops prematurely.
// define('MOD_EVASIVE_OVERRIDE', false);
define('MOD_EVASIVE_DELAY', '500');

Do what it says: un-comment MOD_EVASIVE_OVERRIDE and set it to true like so:

define('MOD_EVASIVE_OVERRIDE', true);

That will slow down the plugin, and you can slow it even further by increasing the MOD_EVASIVE_DELAY number from 500.

Mejor aún, pon las lineas que definen las constantes MOD_EVASIVE_OVERRIDE y MOD_EVASIVE_DELAY en tu archivo wp-config.php, así tus ajustes no se borrarán cuando actualices el plugin.

¿Por qué solo se hacen copias de seguridad de los archivos de base de datos del núcleo por defecto?

Because it’s a fairly safe bet that the core WordPress files will be successfully backed up. Plugins vary wildly in the amount of data that they store. For instance, it’s not uncommon for some statistics plugins to have tens of megabytes worth of visitor statistics. These are not exactly essential items to restore after a catastrophic failure. Most poeple can reasonably live without this data in their backups.

The backups went fine and I saved them on my computer. The problem came after my site went wonky and I tried to restore. Then I noticed that the "Restore" function is a premium addition. After a confused search in panic, I discovered the creators of this plugin have another plugin that restores for us poor sods who didn't go premium. This "Restore" plugin worked great. The support was TOP class. They answered my queries straight away and were very helpful.

This plugin is awesome! It works beautifully. I just wish the automatic scheduled backups gave us the option to save the backups locally to a directory of our choice. I hope the developer(s) read this and continue to update the plugin.

This is the first thing i see on all my pages: Notice: Undefined index: wp_db_temp_dir in /var/www/html/wp-content/plugins/wp-db-backup/wp-db-backup.php on line 112

This is an excellent database plugin. I have daily host-level backups, and once a month I take a full cPanel backup, but as a belt and braces approach I now have daily database backups being sent to an email address, and filtered to a backup folder. Hope I never need them, but if I do I will be relieved to see these archived.

I've been using this plugin for a few years. No problems whatsoever. Yes, it might be a security issue to store the database on the server, so at least be aware of that. Other than this, the plugin is great.
