When I backup my blog every few days, I log in to my host’s CPanel, navigate to the right page, and click the links to download the .tar.gz files for each of my MySQL databases. While this does work, to say the least it’s annoying to have to go to the site every couple of days, click the links, and wait for the files to download (hey, what can I say, I’m lazy).
That all changes now that I’ve started using MySQL Backup. Not only will it let you set up profiles to easily backup databases, but you can also schedule database backups at regular intervals. No more manual backing up for me, now it can all be done automatically. Plus, this way I can’t forget, which is even better.
