- Optionally navigate to Tools->Export database to dowload the databse immmediately (exports will be done weekly via crooned email regardless).
Why did you write this plugin?
The existing options were overly complex, bloated, and lacked key functionality. I am a big believer in simple plugins that do one job well
Can you tell me more about the ongoing backup feature ?
Sure, on a weekly basis this plugin will export the databse to a zip file and email it to the admin email address. This is done in the backgound via cron. The email address that this backup is sent to can be filtered (see the code to do so)
Any caveats, or things I should be aware of?
This plugin may not work for very large large databases and/or very poor hosting. I run it on shared hosting, exporting a database which is over 70 mb and it works fine.
What is something does not work?
LH Mysqldump, and all LocalHero plugins are made to WordPress standards. Therefore they should work with all well coded plugins and themes. However not all plugins and themes are well coded (and this includes many popular ones).
If something does not work properly, firstly deactivate ALL other plugins and switch to one of the themes that come with core, e.g. twentyfirteen, twentysixteen etc.
If the problem persists please leave a post in the support forum: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/lh-mysqldump/. I look there regularly and resolve most queries.
What if I need a feature that is not in the plugin?
