Securing Backup Folder WordPress

When you use wp-dbmanager (wordpress), if it´s not configured properly, you will find this message saying:

Your backup folder MIGHT be visible to the publicTo correct this issue, move the .htaccess file from wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager to /home/websitename/public_html/wp-content/backup-db

To fix this message (and to secure your backup folder):

  1. The wp-dbmanager folder (likely in your wp-content/plugins folder) has a file called htaccess.txt.
  2. Use FTP and download that file to your local computer
  3. Then still using FTP upload that file to the /home/websitename/public_html/wp-content/backup-db folder and rename the file .htaccess

The file .htaccess is as follows:

<Files ~ «.*\..*»>
order allow,deny
deny from all
