Overview: Backup DB is a very easy to use MySQL Backup/Restore utility written in PHP and Perl. The interface is written in PHP to keep things streamlined and the backup/restore processes are written in Perl to avoid PHP's limitations in the areas of safe_mode file ownership and system commands.

PHP & MySQL.
FTP/Telnet access to your server is optional
- allows you easily make backups of your MySQL database(s) and later restore them if necessary.
- backups are compressed (gzip) to save space on your server.
- get a list of the databases available for you to make backups of. You will then have the option of selecting one or more (or all) tables in that database for the actual backup. A subdirectory is created under the backup directory for each backed up database, allowing you to quickly restore the tables later.
- get a list of the database directories available for you to restore from. You will then have the option of selecting one or more (or all) tables in that directory/database for the actual restore.
- files are backed up with the date appended to the file name, so you can backup a table multiple times without overwriting old ones.
