Path to mysqldump for wordpres plugin

apps

#1

I’m using the WP-DBManager plugin for Wordpress to manage my slq backups, and I need some help configuring it…

When it checks the configuration, this is what it says:
Checking Backup Folder (/home/.harlem/anks329/anksconsulting.com/news/wp-content/backup-db) …
Backup folder exists
Backup folder is writable

Checking MYSQL Dump Path …
MYSQL dump path does NOT exist. Please check your mysqldump path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

Checking MYSQL Path …
MYSQL path does NOT exist. Please check your mysql path under DB Options. If uncertain, contact your server administrator.

Checking PHP Functions (passthru(), system() and exec()) …
passthru() enabled.
system() enabled.
exec() enabled.

Please Rectify The Error Highlighted In Red Before Proceeding On.

Basically, I need to set the MySQLDump and MySQL paths, can anyone help? (its probably something very basic and simple that I am forgeting here)

Thanks!

I use the same wordpress plugin on dreamhost. HEre is your answer…

If you SSH in to your server you can run

which mysqldump
which mysql

It will give you the below paths you can use under the DB options.

/usr/bin/mysqldump
/usr/bin/mysql
