Check out this little nugget I found over at the Rackspace Cloud Knowledgebase – CRON MySQL Backup.
Man – you cannot say enough about getting a good backup. This shows how you can get it done over at Rackspace’s Cloud sites – it looks pretty universal, so if you are not on the Rackspace Cloud…it may still work.
But if you’re not hosting there – check them out. They are a very good hosting company with good support.
