Ever had a database crush before you made any backups? Then you now how important it is to have regular backups. But why bother doing them yourself, when you can have a script to do it for you?
automysqlbackup.sh is a simple script that automates your backups. It keeps daily backups for the last week, weekly backups for the last month and monthly backups for older versions of the database. The files are gzipped text files, so you can easily check them manually.
The script has many options, including the possibility to send emails with the new backup files and to use a single file for multiple databases.
