Seems to be correct what comes off the top of your head :) I contacted the support, and days later they replied (translated from German)

mysqldump isn’t installed in our system.

I never thought there were hosting providers with such a Spartan feature set. I also asked them for passthru, popen, & pclose which I found mentioned here in this topic re the 20 bytes problem, and they answered:

popen,pclose aren’t deactivated. We’re happy to set any values for you.

Can any of these be part of or add to my problem? (Last hope before I give in.)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

PHP commands passthru or popen are used by the plugin (it tries both in that order) to run the mysql/mysqldump commands on the server … so, yes, they’re essential!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

Just switched a server to MariaDB (from mySQL) for its supposed benefits.

All is working re core Textpattern functionality, but this great plugin isn’t.

Anybody got rss_admin_db_manager going with MariaDB?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

For the record – it is an easy fix. This plugin checks to make sure MySQL is newer than version 3.23 (a hint at how old this thing is). MariaDB is v10.x. The plugin somehow saw that as older than 3.23. The quick (and dirty) fix is to edit 3.23 in the plugin, to 0.23. And then it works like a charm.

Someone smarter than I will have a more elegant fix, but this works.

FYI, a link to the latest version of this plugin I have found – 4.3.2. It works with Textpattern 4.6.x and 4.5.7:

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

Just a quick update. If anyone relies on this plugin, I’ve forked it and fixed it for Txp 4.6.2 / MySQL clones / PHP 7. Please grab a compiled copy of v4.4 if you wish.

This doesn’t mean I’m maintaining it long-term, but if it helps someone out, then that’s a bonus.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

Hi Stef I have a v4.3 version of this plugin working on 4.6.2. I will update it to your version next week. The question is: what was it that it was not working for you?

The 4.3 version worked, but with newer versions of MySQL, MariaDB and Percona around, it starts to fail. For starters the (now largely irrelevant) version comparison in the plugin fails for MariaDB and Percona, which means the plugin prevented you from running SQL queries.

The plugin also breaks entirely if you run PHP 7, because they’ve removed the mysql_* calls. The 4.4 version uses the mysqli_* calls instead.

EDIT: I’ve edited the post above to make it clearer, thanks for the nudge.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

Any reason why clicking the DB Backup tab should give this error?:
User_Error “Unknown column ‘prefs_id’ in ‘field list’”.

Just this single plugin (v4.4) in a clean install of Textpattern 4.7.1
PHP v5.6.37
MySQL v5.7.16

I guess this is now really an orphaned plugin…but it’s still SO handy to have :)

Thanks

Not so :) Enjoy v4.5 for Textpattern 4.7+

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] rss_admin_db_manager - database backups and more

You’re both welcome. I use it as a quick ‘n dirty MySQL runner when developing/debugging plugins, and as a backup tool when I can’t be bothered to log into my server and run stuff from the command line. I’d really like to beef up the SQL support one day so it can handle other things like DESCRIBE/SHOW.
