I have made some changes to the WordPress Backup procedure and added the Restore script to it. Now you have the ability to backup your MySql database and download it locally, backup your WordPress folder and download it locally, and restore your MySql database, all from the comfort of a web interface (which can be integerated into the WP admin interface). There is added password protection thrown in as well.
I had the nasty fortune of using my own backup and restore script this morning which forced me to code some bugfixes and finally emerged into a completely different way of backing up and restoring.
Please download the new version from the same link.
This has not been tested on a Windows web server (and I am not sure if the applications that I use are present in a Windows/MySql installation, but I need some feedback)
Please let me know what you think.
Some updates have been added to the original backup and restore hack for WordPress by Dean from http://www.dean-logan.com
Backup/restore link in the admin-footer
Code to make it so only a certain user level could see the link.
The layout is the same as the other admin pages. Simply added the admin-header.php include and the admin-footer.php include, put div’s with wrap around the outputs and changed some of the tags.
