DBC Backup 2 v2

Carry on from other news this week about my WordPress plugins … DBC Backup 2 will be getting an update to a new version soon.

What’s coming in the next version of DBC Backup 2?

Download your gzip / sql backup file


What I’m proposing, is that you as plugin admin will specify the IP address of allowed ‘downloaders’ and you’ll then be able to download the backup file 🙂


DBC Backup 2 comes with the best security option for your WordPress database

I really wanted to keep the security of this plugin ‘as-is’ as this plugin provides the best security option for your WordPress database. Similar plugins do not provide any protection for your backup directory which means any would be hack could find and copy your precious backups.

I’ve also setup basic protection on the plugin folder so that people can’t browse the plugin directory (something that WordPress doesn’t protect against).

    This is perhaps a really dumb question, but what is the procedure for restoring from a dbc backup?

      Hi Tim

      The plugin is basic — and designed for one purpose – make backups!

      To restore from a backup you’d use you favourite SQL database tool — personally I use Sequel Pro as I use a Mac.
