Backup MySQL Database in PHP


This is an update on the Data Entry with Picture Upload project that I created previously. I added Backup Database option on the View Data page. This is important to those sites that are using database. It is a good practice to regularly back up our records. Hope you learn from this project.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
