[plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

Important notice:

The original plugin was not updated for Txp 4.0.6 and higher. Alternatives that do work with later (and latest) Txp versions were posted in this thread by

For Textpattern versions 4.6+

  • Bloke: here (contains fixes for SQL clones / PHP 7)
  • MarcoK: here

For Textpattern versions up to 4.5.7

Paths for local installations
Local paths to “mysqldump” and “mysql” might need adaption in order to work. Here are those for MAMP:
mysqldump Path: /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysqldump
mysql Path: /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin/mysql
(To be entered on Extensions > DB Backup.)

Original post

The rss_admin_db_manager Textpattern plugin gives you full control over your Textpattern database. You can think of this plugin as a lightweight replacement for phpMyAdmin. It adds 3 tabs to your admin interface and gives you the ability to do the following:

  • backup your database
  • download your backups
  • restore your backups
  • view the disk space used by your database tables
  • repair/optimize database tables
  • run SQL statements against your database

[The plugin is currently being held for ransom – details here. You can keep up with the campaign and make donations there or at dropcash.

UPDATE: The ransom has been met so the plugin is now available for download.

download- (Do not use this one, updated versions above)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

Can one use it to convert false unicode (produced by Textpattern until very recently) TXP tables to real one, on a full utf-8 database ?

Where will the backup files be saved? On the server or to a local pc?

Jeremie – The plugin uses the mysqldump command but only certain flags are set in the plugin. If you need to use special flags to do conversions its probably best to do it from a command line.

doggiez – The backup files are saved on the server. You then have the ability to download them to you local PC if you want. You can see the options available on the database backup tab screenshot.

I would pay for this, and I did. Thanks, Rob. This looks great! Dropcash looks like it is coming along too (total cash dropped: US$93,059.73).

The ransom is currently at 45% complete and counting. Thanks to all who have supported it thus far.

Another Update

The dropcash campaign is current. 45% complete and counting.
