    So how does the restore work?

    1. admin Post author

      It is recommended that you provide the backup file to your hosting provider and ask them to restore it for you, if you are not familiar with phpmyadmin or other importing methods.

      Suggest me, should i provide an import/restore button in this plugin if you feel it will help the most? Basically its a backup plugin, you can say that taking backup is the most important thing than restoring.

      How to restore your backup files

  3. John Muldoon

    I agree that backups are important. But they are only useful if they can be restored 🙂
    I would suggest a restore button. Or maybe some simple instructions like the ones below.

    One gotcha: My backup file wouldn’t open with the ordinary Windows 7 Compressed Folder utility. I had to download 7-zip to open the zipped file.

    Once that was open, copied the SQL and dropped it in to the phpMyAdmin SQL editor and ran the queries. Et voila!

    Nevertheless, thanks for the software. It just brought a site back to life.

      Thank you John, i will work on restore button or at least instructions to restore the backup. Website backups could be large enough so maximum possible zip compression used. You can use that zip file into phpmyadmin. I really appreciate your interest in this plugin, be in touch and don’t forget to rate it http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/keep-backup-daily.

    Very helpful plugin, but there is a small deficiency. In the zip file, there are all the sub folders that it has.

    1. admin Post author

      Thank you Bilal, i have updated the relevant code snippet and will release it soon. I will add acknowledgement in change-log. Nice to hear appreciation from you.

      This error is related to PHP version installed on your server. In next version i will explain this error with proper guidelines. For now i have linked it to my blog to report an error. Can you please confirm that which PHP version are you using? And if you can ask to your hosting about PHP class “finfo” availability?

      Alternatively you can ask me to look into your wp-admin but its upon your convenience.

      1. Bilal TAŞ

        My PHP Version is 5.2.17 and, downloaded backup doesn’t work. All the requirements are green.

        1. admin Post author

          Bilal, i have two WP installations. One is cached and other one is not. Cached environment is not working fine with backup. If you experience something like that then must inform me, i think it will be another challenge for us.

    In the Requirements Console box inside KBD Settings, there is a red X next to FileInfo Library….

    What is causing the backup not to work?

    1. admin Post author

      Backup will work fine but backup now option might won’t work fine. Look here

      But i have used alternative to be on safe side. Latest versions of PHP have FileInfo Library installed.

    I have installed the plugin on localhost, but it is showing the message plugin not working on your server. Please tell me what might be the problem. I am including this plugin in my blog. I need to know about each and everything clearly. Please help me.

      Thanks for using this plugin but it is recommended that you install it on live site instead of localhost (PC). Anyways, try to use the option “Backup Now” from settings menu and get back to me with the results.

  11. Steph

    Write Permissions- yes
    Zip Library- yes
    MCRYPT Library- yes
    Fileinfo Library- no (has a red cross next to it)

    Not sure what to do?

    1. admin Post author

      Try to take backup with this plugin, do you get it correctly? If no, then inform me because i have coded this plugin with downwards compatibility. If a library is not available, it will use the deprecated function(s). But still these requirements were necessary so i provided them as console items. I will be here to help you out, you can contact me via contact form if required.
