What can SQLBackupAndFTP do?

This tool runs scheduled backups of MySQL databases, runs local file/folder backup, compresses and encrypts the backups, stores them on a network folder, FTP server or in the cloud (Amazon S3, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive), removes old backups, and sends an email confirmation on the task's success or failure. Later you can restore any backup right from the program. In addition SQLBackupAndFTP makes backup history available online and notifies you if your MySQL server is down.

What's unique about this MySQL backup tool?

  • If you can not connect to MySQL server through TCP/IP, you can backup MySQL through phpMyAdmin Export- just need a URL and login to it
  • You can see MySql backup results for multiple servers through the web log
  • Free version is fully functional and ideal when you need ad hoc MySql backup or to schedule 1 or 2 databases

How does it backup MySql databases?

SQLBackupAndFTP runs on Windows machine and backups databases on remote or local MySql Server via TCP/IP (SSH) connection or by means of phpMyAdmin Export. In both cases it creates MySql backup script that later can be run to restore the MySql database. When TCP/IP connection is used the backup is accomplished using mysqldump utility.

How does this tool relate to MySQLBackupFTP?

Before SQLBackupAndFTP and MySQLBackupFTP were different products but now MySQLBackupFTP is deprecated since SQLBackupAndFTP includes all its functionality and even more - it can restore MySQL backups and notify you if something went wrong with your MySQL Server.
