If you host your own blog or no web-based application running on the stack, should have a backup system Keeping data stored in MySQL databases safe. There are several solutions that can help for you, and but nothing beats a simple Bash script I stumbled upon in a blog Post comment. Here are the script in all its beauty:
"If you manage to have your own blog or web-based application running on the apache/mysql/php stack, you should have a backup system to secure the data in the MySQL database." Of course there are some good options, but none is comparable to a simple bash script. That's what I stumbled upon in a blog comment. It's the one that's beautiful. The script: "
#!/bin/bashnow= ' date + '%y-%m '; Backupdir= "location/of/your/backup/dir/$NOW"; ### Server Setup ####* mysql Login user name * #MUSER = "user"; #* mysql login P Assword name * #MPASS = "pass"; #* MySQL Login HOST name * #MHOST = "Your-mysql-ip"; Mport= "Your-mysql-port"; # do not BACKUP these databasesignoredb= "information_schemamysqltest" #* MySQL binaries * #MYSQL = ' which MySQL '; mysqldump= ' which mysqldump '; gzip= ' which gzip '; # assuming That/nas is mounted via/etc/fstabif [!-D $BACKUPDIR]; Then mkdir-p $BACKUPDIRelse: fi# Get all database listingdbs= $ (mysql-u $MUSER-p$mpass-h $MHOST-P $MPORT-bse ' show D Atabases ') "# SET DATE and time for the filenow= ' date + ' d%dh%hm%ms%s '; # day-hour-minute-sec format# start to dump database one by Onefor DB in $DBSdo dump= "yes"; If ["$IGNOREDB" "!="]; Then for i in $IGNOREDB # Store all value of $IGNOREDB ' I do if [' $db ' = ' $i ']; Then # If result of $DBS (db) are equal to $IGNOREDB (i) then dump= "NO"; # SET value of DUMP to "no" #echo $i the database is BeinG ignored!

The best part is ' You ' need to specify a handful ' parameters to ' script work. This is includes Backupdir (the destination for storing backups), Muser (MySQL user), mpass (mysql user password), Mhost (the IP address of the MySQL server, e.g. localhost, and mport (the port's MySQL database is running on, default is 3306).
"The great thing about it is that you just need to define some parameters before you run the script." This includes backupdir (storing this part of the directory), Muser (MySQL user), mpass (mysql user password), mhost (MySQL server IP address, such as: localhost), and mport (MySQL database working port, The default is 3306). 】
You can run the script manually, or your can set up a cron job which'll perform backups on a regular basis. To does this, run the Crontab-ecommand and add the following line (replace the sample path with the actual path and backup Script name):
"You can run this script manually, or set up a scheduled job (a cron job) to automate the backup as scheduled. To set up a scheduled job, run the CRONTAB-E command and add the following code (replace the sample path with the actual path and the backup script name): "
Don ' t forget to make the script executable using the chmod a+x mysqlbackupscript.sh command.
"Don't forget to use the chmod a+x mysqlbackupscript.sh command to execute the script. 】
