I am writting this post because just a few days ago when i shifted my hosting sever one of my blog got deleted or it was not transfered correctly the reason was not clear then the only option for me was to restore my wordpress blog from backup thank to wordpress db backup plugin i have the backup in sql format .

now the thing was to restore i have googled for restoring but every one was telling to restore by going to hosting account then configuring php my admin and sql that was totally unknown for me . the wp-db backup pluging has an advantage that it backs up your wordpress blog but it does not have nay option to restore them.

next i found a plugin WP-DBManager http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-dbmanager/

this plugin has the advantage of both backing up and restoring up your wordpress blog . let us see how to back up and restore.

1.install the plugin by going to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-dbmanager/

2. activate it and then in your dasboard you will find DATABASE.

  2. The WP-DBManager plugin is the best for me. I set it to make backups and email it directly to me. This is a set it up once and forget about it. I also use it when I upgrade to new WP version.

    I’m sure many users will enjoy this detailed post and maybe even install the plugin if they haven’t already.
