Let’s face it: data backup is a very important task we all just must do in order to maintain our databases and important corporate information.
Much easier then a manually maintained shell script, then, is MySQLDumper. MySQLDumper is a PHP and Perl based tool for backing up MySQL databases. You can easily dump your data into a backup file and – if needed – restore it. It is especially suited for Environments, where you don’t have shell access. MySQLDumper is an open source project and released under the GNU-license.
