Tool of the Month: MySQL Backup

Up

Down

A handy open source MySQL backup utility.
The script uses mysqldump to dump the data from one or more databases and then uses tar and gzip to compress them. If you have a large database, the textfiles may take up quite a bit of space, so you have the option to delete them after the mysql_backup script has finished with them and produced a gzipped archive. If you want to delete the text files, set the appropriately named delete_text_files variable to "yes".
