Bash scripts to backup all databases in a MySQL server with the option to exclude some databases.
#!/usr/bin/env bash
#This script backups selected databases in local MySQL server
##mysqldump gzip
##mysql database has no root password. This script uses 'root' MySQL user without password as no 'root' password is set.
