 Backing Up MySQL

"It is a straightforward script, uses mysqldump and tar/gzips the files prior to using ftp to move the data to a remote server. This script and the one below can easily be modified to use scp if you prefer running the transfer over ssh. The second script is updated to use mysqlhotcopy and is specifically for use with ISAM/MYISAM tables only. This script below will NOT work with InnoDB tables."
