I use Backup Buddy (iThemes) to backup my WP sites. One advantage of Backup Buddy I like is the ability to "micro" control which files and databases get copied and / or backed up.
Since I always rename my database prefix (as a security measure), it's easy for me to identify the database tables I want to copy.
Oddly, when using Backup Buddy, I also see WP database tables with the prefix "sog" Here is a complete list of them:
Apart form the prefix "sog" these are all duplicates of existing databases with the prefix I chose when I renamed the tables. Does anyone here have any idea what the source of these additional tables might be?
When I include them in the backup, the resulting website when I restore is non-functional.
I'm sure I can just manually exclude them from the backup, but I want to track down their origin.
Thanks for the help.
Do you have any subdomains attached to that site, by chance? Sometimes I forget to go into my BackupBuddy settings and update the list of excluded folders, so I end up with partial tables from subdomains' databases. Just a thought!
