There are cases in which you may want to backup data from Post Pay Counter (and maybe Post Pay Counter PRO). If you have access to PhpMyAdmin, this can be easily achieved through a handful of custom queries that can pull out all relevant data. Selected rows can then be exported in a SQL file, serving as a backup. The three queries are the following:
SELECT * FROM wp_options WHERE option_name IN ("ppc_settings", "ppc_errors", "ppcp_ga_stuff", "ppc_dismissed_notifications", "ppc_addons_list", "_ppcp_payment_history", "ppcp_ga_first_request", "ppcp_ga_last_request") SELECT * FROM wp_postmeta WHERE meta_key IN ( "_ppcp_ga_visits", "_ppcp_adsense_revenue", "_ppcp_ga_data", "_ppcp_payment_history", "_ppcp_exclude") SELECT * FROM wp_usermeta WHERE meta_key IN ( "_ppcp_payment_history" ) OR meta_key LIKE "%ppcp_paypal_email"
These queries will extract all Post Pay Counter and Post Pay Counter PRO data (general settings, custom user settings, Analytics authorization information and visits for each post, payment history both for posts and authors, user PayPal emails, excluded posts from stats – it should really include ALL possible database data). Notice that other addons may need additional backup to be done.
You can then use the PhpMyAdmin Export feature to download the sql file for each query and store them safely. Below is an animated example of the process (for one query):
