Is there a reliable plugin that I could use to automatically backup the WP database? It's really important that it's just the database and not the files.

I'd like it to automatically download a copy of the database and store it on my computer in a specified file.

Is there one out there that could do this?


BackWPup has a lot of flexibility in timing, what to backup (down to the DB table level), and it can store to DropBox which would put it on your computer.

Backup Buddy is my absolute favorite. Features:

  • db only backups
  • full backups
  • migration tool
  • scheduled backups to email or remote server
  • malware inspection

If you are looking for all in one plugin for WordPress backup, deliver and restore operations, then I would recommend you to take a look at HotBackup plugin. I could enable database backup only and connect it to your Dropbox account. Then backups will be created by a schedule and automatically uploads to your Dropbox account and then to your pc.
