You might find it useful for your websites.Backup Remote MySQL DatabasesWith the growing popularity of web apps backing up the databases they use is increasing in importance. While a good web host will provide backup services, the responsibility for backing up still rests with the website owner/operator. For security I have my web apps running locally on my laptop and on my remote server. This requires synchronizing the databases. It can be done manually with the help of phpMyAdmin but it is cumbersome, to say the least. It can be done with a Cron-job but sending the backup file as an email attachment is not secure. Besides, I could not find a way to back up just selected tables instead of the whole database. I decided to incorporate a backup feature into my web app with a MySQLbackup php class. For now I'm using phpMyAdmin for the restore function but I expect to write a MySQLrestore php class sometime in the future.Read more and download...http://softwaretimes.com/downloads/backup+remote+mysql+datab...Denny Schlesinger
