    Lightbulb Backing up my database... automatically

    Dear all…

    Ok so I’ve just about got the PHP thing under control and the JavaScript (so I can learn Ajax next) is coming along… so the next thing I need to sort out is a bit of backing up of MySQL.

    Short of manually backing up my database each evening (hard to do as I am away a lot and the wife does like to see me occasionally) with a dump file via my host’s poor PHPMyAdmin, - or trusting them to do it correctly…

    Question:
    Is there a script / program / magic bit of hocus-pocus that will automatically back up my database and perhaps mail it to me every 24 hours or so?

    Answer: … over to you!

    Many thanks

    Hi, I use MySQL and it's own database administrator, which can be downloaded (just google it). The program allows you to create and schedule backups. Most other databases also have such programs which allow for this. Hope it helps.
