Subject:Cron file for Backup
View as plain text  
Does anyone have a Cron file written for backing up Mysql databases on a
Linux Mandrake 7.0 system.
Basically, need to run a cron file every night to backup all databases
to my second hard drive in the computer.
Eventually, I would like to get a tape backup.

I usually do a mysqldump databasename.dump > databasename   at the end
of the month, but now I have too many databases to deal with and I would
like to automate the process.
