The Database Defaults section allows you to set the default base database tables to backup, plus specific inclusions and exclusions of tables beyond base.

Default database tables to backup

This setting determines the default set of database tables to backup. If this WordPress' tables is selected, then only tables with the same prefix (for example wp_ for this installation) will be backed up by default. If all are selected, then all tables will be backed up by default. Additional inclusions & exclusions may be defined in the inclusions and exclusions picker.

Choose from:

  • This WordPress' tables (prefix wp_) - [Default] Default WordPress tables with the wp_ prefix.
  • All tables in database (including non-WordPress) - When this option is enabled, ALL tables and data in the database will be backed up, even database content not related to WordPress, its content or plugins (based on prefix). This is useful if you have other software installed on your hosting that stores data in your database.
