What's unique about this MySQL backup tool?

  • Not all hosting platforms allow database administrators to connect to the hosted database via TCP/IP. If you cannot connect to your MySQL server through TCP/IP, you can still backup MySQL through phpMyAdmin Export. All you need is a URL for you to login to your phpMyAdmin
  • You can view MySQL backup results for multiple servers. The results are available through the web log
  • This tool has a free version that is fully functional. It is the ideal solution if all you need are ad hoc MySQL backups or scheduled backups for 1 or 2 databases

How does it backup MySql databases?

SQLBackupAndFTP runs on Windows machines, and can backup both remote and local MySQL databases. Two database connection methods are available: via a TCP/IP (SSH) connection or by using phpMyAdmin Export. In both cases, it creates MySQL scripts that can be run later to restore the MySQL databases. When TCP/IP connection is used, the backup is performed using the mysqldump utility.

How does this tool relate to MySQLBackupFTP?
