• I did not look at the script in detail, but I made a search on “flush” as in –flush-logs or -F. No results found. This is pretty bad as you loose all data from the moment of the backup to the moment of the crash.

    Real men use binary logs!

  • Some backup is better than no backup 😛 If you have a better solution for automated backups, please, share it with us.

  • Take a look at this page, it explains it all:

    Cheers 😉

  • RTFM, heh? I’ll look into it 😛

  • Backups do not need to be a hassle. A half-decent backup cron will run for years!
