Where do I find my database connection settings for BackWPup restore?
When you want to use our feature to restore backups, you need a connection to your database. BackWPup can overwrite the current database with the one in the backup only with a working connection. BackWPup is going to ask for these data in step 3 of the restore process.
You need to enter the following data:
- Database name
- Database user
Database connection settings for BackWPup restore: Check out the wp-config
You can find all relevant data in the wp-config.php file, which can be found in the main directory of your WordPress installation. You need the following entries:
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** // /** The name of the database for WordPress */ define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here'); /** MySQL database username */ define('DB_USER', 'username_here'); /** MySQL database password */ define('DB_PASSWORD', 'password_here'); /** MySQL hostname */ define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');
