# Website Backup Shell Script
# by Andrew Currie (andrew@digitalpci.com)
#
# Performs a full backup of the specified database and document root.
# Be sure to edit the configuration options at the beginning of the file to match your environment prior to executing.
# The end result will be one TAR archive with the name 'website-backup-(current-datestamp)'.
# The backup includes the entire document root directory and also a 'database.sql' file containing a MySQL dump of the database.
#
# Begin Configuration Options (Specify which webroot and which database to backup.)
#
# Define The Website Document Root
webrootdir=/var/www/html/example.org
#
# Define The MySQL MySQL Database Name
dbname=DATABASE-NAME-HERE
#
# Define The MySQL Database Connection
dbhost=DATABASE-HOST-HERE
dbuser=DATABASE-USERNAME-HERE
dbpass=DATABASE-PASSWORD-HERE
#
# Define The Default Backup Filename
tarnamebase=Website-Backup-
datestamp=`date +'%Y-%m-%d'`
#
# Define The Script Execution Point
startdir=`pwd`
#
# Define The Temporary Working Directory
tempdir=TemporaryBackup-$datestamp
#
# End Configuration Options
#
