MySQL Backup Tool script description:




Publisher review:
MySQL Backup Tool is an utility that helps you to backup your MySQL database tables. MySQL Backup is written in Perl. It uses mysqlshow to grab the database names and "show tables" to grab the table names for a user's account, and then uses mysqldump to save the data in a subdirectory named in the script. It then tars and gzips the files, using the date and time for the file name.

It can be run from cron on a daily basis. It now removes old files and has an option to email the gzip file to an admin. It also has options to use "select data into outfile" or a regular "select" for users who can't use mysqldump. (Some hosts don't allow that.)

Features:
- options to refine the tar/gzip functions (-z switch, piped or two step method, intermediate text file deletion and support for bzip2);
- mysqldump now uses --result-file (check your version of mysqldump!);
- the script can now be run from the web, with password protection;
- the script now works on both Linux and Windows (including email and ftp functions);
- fixed a much requested bug with the parsing of whereis output;
- added a significant amount of error checking;
- cleaned up the reporting method;
- rewrote the subroutine that deletes text files;
- added a switch to disable reporting to stdout;
- created a method for selecting method of output (screen, email or both) for all print commands;
MySQL Backup Tool is a Perl script for Database Tools scripts design by Peter F. Brown. It runs on following operating system: Windows / Linux / Mac OS / BSD / Solaris.

Operating system:
