I just realized that the WordPress Database Plugin (version 2.2.2) isn’t working for scheduled backups on this blog.
Scheduled backups work on all my other blogs, but not this one and I can’t figure out why. Luckily it still seems to work for manual backups, but I want it to do daily scheduled backups and it’s not emailing me a backup file. Grrrr. As I said in my post about the worm that’s been infecting old installs of WordPress blogs I want to be sure I have a current backup of all my blogs – just in case!
A few of my other blogs have the exact same plugins as this blog does, so while I think it’s possible that it’s a plugin conflict, it doesn’t make sense that the backup plugin is still working properly on the other blogs.
I did a search for other WP database backup plugins at WordPress.org and there are a few that sound like they might work well, but I’d love to hear from my visitors what they use for their blogs. Two that I’m wondering about are WP-DBmanager and WordPress EZ-Backup. Both sound good but I’d love to hear from anyone that’s been using them with WP 2.8.4 on a site with a fair amount of other plugins in use.
