Questo plugin non è stato testato con le ultime 3 versioni principali (major releases) di WordPress. Potrebbe non essere più mantenuto, o supportato, e potrebbe presentare problemi di compatibilità se utilizzato con versioni più recenti di WordPress.



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.

General Usage

  1. Activate WP-DBManager Plugin
  2. The script will automatically create a folder called backup-db in the wp-content folder if that folder is writable. If it is not created, please create the folder and ensure that the folder is writable
  3. Open Folder: wp-content/backup-db
  4. If you are on Apache, move the htaccess.txt file from Folder: wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to Folder: wp-content/backup-db/.htaccess if it is not there already
  5. If you are on IIS, move the Web.config.txt file from Folder: wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to Folder: wp-content/backup-db/Web.config if it is not there already
  6. Move index.php file from Folder: wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to Folder: wp-content/backup-db/index.php if it is not there already
  7. Go to WP-Admin -> Database -> DB Options to configure the database options

Build Status





  • I spent most of my free time creating, updating, maintaining and supporting these plugins, if you really love my plugins and could spare me a couple of bucks, I will really appreciate it. If not feel free to use it without any obligations.


  • Note that this plugin passes your datababase password via –password in the command line of mysqldump. This is convenient but as a trade off, it is insecure.
  • On some systems, your password becomes visible to system status programs such as ps that may be invoked by other users to display command lines. MySQL clients typically overwrite the command-line password argument with zeros during their initialization sequence. However, there is still a brief interval during which the value is visible. Also, on some systems this overwriting strategy is ineffective and the password remains visible to ps. Source: End-User Guidelines for Password Security
  • If this is a concern to you, I recommend another database backup plugin called WP-DB-Backup
  • To know about the difference between WP-DBManager and WP-DB-backup, checkout What is the difference between WP-DBManager and WP-DB-Backup? in the FAQ section.


  • Admin – Backup DB
  • Admin – Empty/Drop Tables In DB
  • Admin – DB Information
  • Admin – Manage DB
  • Admin – Optimize DB
  • Admin – DB Options
  • Admin – DB Options
  • Admin – Repair DB
  • Admin – Run Query in DB


My database is not backed up / My backup file is 0Kb

  • Ensure that your host allows you to access mysqldump. You can try to narrow the problem by Debugging via SSH:
  1. In wp-dbmanager.php
  2. Find check_backup_files(); on line 246
  3. Add below it echo $command;
  4. Go to WP-Admin -> Database -> Backup
  5. Click Backup
  6. It should print some debugging statements
  7. Copy that line than run it in SSH
  8. If you need help on SSH contact your host or google for more info

What is the difference between WP-DBManager and WP-DB-Backup?

  • WP-DBManager uses mysqldump application to generate the backup and mysql application to restore them via shell.
  • WP-DB-Backup uses PHP to generate the backup. In some cases WP-DB-Backup will work better for you because it requires less permissions. Not all host allows you to access mysqldump/mysql directly via shell.
  • WP-DBManager allows you to have automatic optimizing and repairing of database on top of backing up of database.

Why do I get the message “Warning: Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the public!”?

  • Ensure that you have renamed htaccess.txt to .htaccess and placed it in your backup folder (defaults to wp-content/backup-db/)
  • If you are 100% sure you have did that and have verfied that the folder no longer is accessible to the public by visiting the URL, you can safely disable the notice by going to WP-Admin -> Database -> DB Options and set Hide Admin Notices to Yes.

I use this along with a Windows program called Backup4All on my server to create regular backups of my WP instances to Amazon S3. It’s also easy to do an instant db backup and then zip up the site folder with the db inside on the server if I’m doing something risky. I wanted something that was simple, affordable and logical and found this one best after testing many others. Thanks heaps!

From version 2.80.7 the menu is visible again without activated theme and plugin editor. old Since version 2.80.6 only works with activated theme and plugin editor.

I have been using this plugin for years and its working fine so far. I’m wondering why it’s not getting any updates?! It updated a year back, but it’s supporting the recent version of WordPress 5.7.2 (soon 5.8), and it’s working fine. My worry is due to compatibility issue it may give problem while restore, and it may be data risk. Hope the plugin author will update the plugin and make it compatible with current version of WordPress. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the author. Its really simple and easy backup restore and with a lot of options, especially no confusion in the settings. The plugin is worth more than 5 star. Thank You Giri
