hi all,
i have a MySQL database and wanted to keep a \'mirrored\' backup (ie: every time a request is sent to it the server the backup is made) of it on the same server in a different directory for backup purposes. Is is possible to do this?

Obviously this would have something to do with CRON but i have absolutley no idea how to script it and would not want to touch it after the great linux box crash of last week.

There is a hot backup plugin available for mySQL


Since the mySQL databases are stored as files on the server you could also setup something yourself to archive the files somewhere else every so often.
