Just wondering -those of a g33ky p3rsu410n, is there an easy way to backup a MySQL database automatically – ie. not me doing it manually, and emailing or FTPing the files to me?
Or at minimum on the same webspace, but off-server would be better.
I guess it’s a ‘CRON job’ (and yes I can run those, so get scripts to run automagically) but scared I could do some damage not knowing what I’m doing…not knowing any CGI/Perl type gubbins, or how to set up CRON properly.
Not seen much simple guides about this, and would prefer a tested script…
