wmcmurray / backup-database.bash
Created October 9, 2021 15:15
A simple bash script to create Daily, Monthly and Yearly MySQL database backups
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# This script creates daily + monthly + yearly mysql database backups locally (on the same server)
# It DOESN'T notify you by email if an error happens, and DOESN'T store backups on a cloud service !
# It DOES save a log file with the history of errors/success tho :)
# --- Edit those settings !
