Does your web hosting run on cPanel? Is that a silly question?
If the answer is yes, read on. Otherwise, you can go and read another cool blog here.
You probably have MySQL databases on your web hosting and if you’ve any solid respect for technology, you back up your databases regularly.
There are many assumptions in the last sentence, but don’t worry, we’ve just made backing up all your cPanel MySQL databases a synch!
MySQL Database Backup script for cPanel web hosting v2.0
We received many requests about why you couldn’t FTP your database backups like you can with the Full cPanel Backup Script.
The answer was simple – all our scripts make full use of cPanel’s built-in API to ensure maximum performance and reliability. And unfortunately the MySQL feature didn’t have a built in FTP function.
So we decided to build it ourselves…
MySQL Backup for cPanel now supports remote FTP copy
With this brand new, completely rewritten script, you can now chose to FTP all your MySQL databases to an offsite FTP repository.
- Download all MySQL databases from a single cPanel account.
- Store the files locally (where the script runs) or delete them after processing.
- Active / Passive FTP copy
- FTP / Secure FTPS
- Fully logging so you know exactly what happens and can easily debug problems if they arise.
Best of all, it’s still completely FREE!
If you want it, you just have to go to the Developer Channel, sign-up to become a member and download!
FTP to Amazon S3?
Enough is rarely ever enough. The next question I anticipate is – “Can this script copy to Amazon S3?”.
That’s not like to happen but if you need it, you should consider FTP 2 Cloud. FTP 2 Cloud is in beta at the moment but it works very well.
Instead of FTPing your backups to a remote repository, you setup your FTP2Cloud account and FTP there instead. Then, they will automatically copy your FTP files to your Amazon S3 account.
At the time of writing it’s free because it’s in beta. Give it a shot!
