MySQLDumper for Scripts Publisher's description
This is a backup script for MySQL databases written in PHP and Perl
MySQLDumper uses a proprietary technique to avoid execution interruption.
If a database restore is need, the application uses the same process to restore the backup. Unlike other tools splitting and splicing of large files is no longer necessary.
MySQLDumper offers to write data directly into a compressed gz-File. The Restore-Script is able to read this file directly without unpacking it. Of course you can use it without compression, however using Gzip saves a sizeable amount of bandwidth.
Here are some key features of "MySQLDumper":
В· Saves important MySQL-Data via web-gui (PHP) or automatically via cronjob (Perl).
В· Can handle big databases and bypasses timeout problems.
В· Can restore your dump files in the case of data loss.
В· Comes with a Perl script that can automatically be started by a cronjob.
В· Gives full access to the MySQL-DB and lets you search, edit and insert data.
В· Via configuration profiles you can access different MySQL-Users and even different MySQL-Server from within one MSD-Installation.
В· Let MySQLDumper send you and optionally your friends an e-mail with your backups attached.
В· Let MSD transfer your backups via FTP to up to 3 different FTP-Server.
В· Use the multipart-feature to split the data into several files. You can define the split size.
В· MySQLDumper takes care of character encoding problems and saves the current encoding as a comment in the file. When restoring it reads that information and restores your data automatically with the correct encoding.
В· Configuring is very easy and done in a nice looking web-gui.
В· No need to split big dump files manually. Upload your file via FTP and let MSD do all the work.
В· Works with PHP 4 and PHP 5 and MySQL versions 3,4,5 and hopefully also 6.
В· Define how many backups should remain on the server - old backups will automatically be deleted to save server web space.
В· Create a directory protection right out of the web-gui and protect your backup files and MySQLDumper itself.
В· Define MySQL-Queries that can be executed before and/or after the backup progress (e.x. to shutdown your forum while backing up and re-activate it after finishing the job).
В· To put it short: MySQLDumper is your complete, web based backup suite for MySQL-Databases, especially if you don't have shell access.
