backup with mysqldump can this be done ?
Hello all,

I will have my own server (co-located) soon. There will be a client site on it that uses sqllinks.

I want to give the client the option too backup his whole database in mysql that he will use. So the standard backup that nph-build.cgi makes isn't enough. He get's ftp login and have a path like /opt/usr/www.hisdomain.com/

How to make a mysqldump to his path, is that possbile ? Shall i insert that command in the crontab or shall i make it possible that he can make's the dump with pressing 1 button on the web, so he has a up-to-date database instead of 1 day old ? After the dump is done he can download the backup with ftp.

Other question:
Why isn't the table CategoryAlternates include in the backup with nph-build.cgi and how to mod nph-build.cgi that it will make a backup the table CategoryAlternates ?

Allready thanks.

Regards startpoint.
