MySQL Backup for Linux Publisher's description
MySQL Backup is written in Perl.
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 and/or ftp the files to a remote server. 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.)
