Did you get it fixed?

I also had this problem. 
I fixed it by first logging in as admin, then going to /web/database/manager and doing the backup.

Can't say I've had this problem before, so I don't know the reason for suddenly having to log in.

Thanks, I fixed it.

Also you can backup database from terminal by following commands :

-> sudo su postgres

-> psql -l     (  it will display database list )

-> pg_dump database_name > /tmp/backup_database.sql
