Backup Buddy & Multi-Db
Posted 05 July 2012 - 07:11 PM
I saw in the forum that someone at the end of last year was offering code that would make Backup Buddy work with Multi-DB from WPMU Dev. Has this been implemented yet?

The feature isn't currently in BackupBuddy Multisite (beta) but has now been (re)bumped to the devs to look into.

It is the one thing I need so I would purchase once it has been implemented. Is there anywhere I could track this to see when it has been implemented?

Someone with BackupBuddy could watch for PBBB-115 in the changelog for new versions that get pushed out. Or by following the member's thread talking about about the feature request.

What code are you referring to? Multi-DB isn't the top priority right now though as Multisite functionality is still in beta.
Yes, BackupBuddy can be installed on each WordPress installation.
Their backups can also be kept separate. By default BackupBuddy the top level domain will backup up everything including the subdomain but can be told in BackupBuddy's Settings page to not include that directory in backups. That is actually the preferred BackupBuddy setup for multiple sites in the same spot like that (that is; BackupBuddy installed on each site with top level domains having the lower ones excluded).

The member "Skyrocket" mentioned he had some code that works here http://ithemes.com/forum/topic/20682-using-backupbuddy-with-wpmudevs-multi-db/page__hl__databases__fromsearch__1
Can you post back in here if this code may be included?

I have not received the aforementioned code. If someone will send it to me I can look into it but nothing has been posted or shared so multi db is still not supported.

I'm told BackupBuddy's what I need, but I've not seen this confirmed. If not, could someone suggest an alternative?
Why does BackupBuddy offer TWO licences, if it works on multisites? What's the second licence for?

Multisite functionality wasn't originally part of BackupBuddy and was added in later.
I'm not familiar with CRM but if its files are in the WordPress installation then those will get backed up as well (unless tell BackupBuddy not to back it up as a backup exclusions) since BackupBuddy will back up everything in the WordPress installation. If CRM has a separate database though then no. If same database that the WordPress installation uses then can check the box in BackupBuddy's Settings page to backup all database tables which will get other database tables not in the WordPress prefix.

No update on it and unlikely to be supporting this soon. Multisite functionality is still in beta (so multsite actually has higher priority right now even than multi-db) so for live/production purposes standalone is preferred if possible.
