    Hi everyone..

    When I make a full backup via backup manager, where is the mysql backup saved?

    I searched through all the folders in the backup and couldn't find it.

    Thanks! :)

    My backups have a mysql folder which contains the mysql backups.

    I figured that...

    Too bad it gave me 1 file "horde.sql" containing connection errors..

    That's not good, my host is down and we want to change hosts!

    By Default, the backup file stores in your home directory folder.

    I could help you there but are you so sure that your host is down?

    There are a lot of reasons a host could appear down to you but actually
    be fully online and working perfectly including ...
    Code:
    Problems with your home computer firewall or security applications.
    
    Problems in your local area or neighborhood network / DNS caching.
    
    Problems out on the open internet between somewhere between you and your host.
    
    Conditions called netsplits where the Internet actually fragments temporarily.
    
    You got banned either deliberately or accidentally at your host.
    
    So unless you really know for certain, I wouldn't be so quick to jump the gun and assume that your current host is actually down.

    No, it's down.. They are also switching servers..

    It's a free host we were using as a testing server..


    It's fine though, when it gets back up, I will get a mysql save.
