Hi guys,

I was wondering if someone could suggest a plugin for doing site backup's of both files and the database. We have tried wp_snapshot however our host has disabled shell_exe(), so this fails, Our main backup requirement is the database to be sent via email as a sql dump.

Any suggestions of a free solution appricated.

You can try to use WordPress Database Backup in conjunction with WordPress backup to make copies and have them emailed to you (size permitting):

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-db-backup/
http://www.blogtrafficexchange.com/wordpress-backup/

However, if your site is at all important to you, I would spring for a paid backup service like VaultPress or WP Online Backup...

The one that works the best isn't free: http://pluginbuddy.com/purchase/backupbuddy/

Some free ones to try: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/backup

Here's a script that might work: http://sourceforge.net/projects/automysqlbackup/
