Maybe you guys can help me with this, I wrote up a backup database php snippet that I want to merge with a mailing script, but I'm having a hard time tracking down some good docs on what the mime stuff looks like without getting a class involved (I really don't like OOP, and since I'm still kinda new to programming in general, I can't appreciate its benefits). I don't need a mountain of help, just a peek at what the mime stuff is supposed to look like to attach the file.

A quick question, I've read a lot about how it's not a good idea storing backups in root on the server. What is "root"? My guess is that it's the public_html/www dir, but even so I want to be sure so I figured I'd ask.

root is basically what windows users would call an 'administrator'. It's not a good idea to save backups as root as other users cannot access them because of the file permissions.

Don't worry, the printer fairies will sort it out.
