Have you checked the backup file to see if there is any data in the backup?

I have read about problems with the wp-dbmanager plugin on a set-up with the MySQL server on a different server than the WordPress installation. Of course I can't find the article now, but the solution that I read was to try using a different backup plugin. The plugin that they recommended was WP-DB-Backup.

So you might want to give the different plugin a try if the backup file that was emailed to you was empty.


Thanks for a good video.
I have installed WB DB manager & Wordpress backup.

I thourght that WP-DB was a back up of everything, so I am glad that I found your video where you say that we need Wordpress backup also to backup the photos etc..

I have a question to WP DB.

Thank you for a great video. I have a littel problem and a question regarding the WP-DBManager.
Regarding to the Path To mysqldump og Path To mysql.
I asked my host(unoeuro.com) for the Path To mysqldump og Path To mysql.
I was told that I could not get that because web and mysql is not on the same server.
I tryed to set up WP-DBManager without that and it has sent me a backup to my email.
So is the Path To mysqldump og Path To mysql necessary and what exactly is it?

Thanks best regards
