Tested on WordPress 3.8
DBC Backup 2 is a WordPress plugin that creates backups of your database. DBC Backup 2 has just been update to v2.3.24.
DBC Backup 2 has been completely redesigned and looks great as part of WordPress 3.8.
What’s new in DBC Backup 2
The latest version of DBC Backup 2 includes a number of significant changes
- Support for PHP 5.x – resolves issue which required a manual work around / blocked importing backup files

- New layout / visual design in time for WordPress 3.8
- Most PHP error notices have been cleared and fixed.
The next version of DBC Backup 2 is just around the corner – I’ve held it back to better test the backup files and tinker with the admin panel.
So What’s in DBC Backup 2 v2.3?
Key features of this version are
1. Support for SQL server 5.5 and up
2. Removes annoying debug log errors
3. Transitions from mysql to mysqli
4. Admin panel now has a default save location and creates a Backup folder inside WP-Content directory.
5. Admin panel now has a Status panel to let you know that your backup folder is protected
Note – this version requires SQL Server 5.5 or up and may not be compatible with old versions of SQL Server
Testing DBC Backup 2
Testing this version is the hardest yet — this is because the backup file is being changed and there are changes to MySQL as well.
