Backup Watcher for MySQL works
with your data with the help of profiles. You can create any number
of profiles to make data backup more effective. All created profiles
will be shown in the list of profiles, which is situated on the
main form of the program. Every profile contains the main following
MySQL server parameters
Local or Remote MySQL
backup of a database
Databases for backup
Location of the backup copies
Watcher for MySQL is intended for making database backups
of the MySQL server. Archiving can be done on a local computer
as well as using a remote server in the Internet even
if your data is behind the firewall.
The program has the builtin and easily customized scheduler,
thanks to which it is now possible not only to carry out "manual"
backup but also to customize the scheduler so that the program would
automatically carry out the backup of the specified databases daily,
weekly, monthly or once on the established time. This gives an opportunity
to restore the information, which was lost because of the users
wrong actions or machine failure, namely:
breakdown of the computer, on which the database is kept, which
caused its full loss;
stealing of the computer, on which the database is kept;
actions of the user (who works with the computer, on which the database
is kept), which caused full or partial data loss.
After the installation the Backup
Watcher for MySQL places its icon into the System tray,
and during the minimization of the main form "removes" itself
from the taskbar of Windows. It is very convenient, especially
program is used on the server as the agent, which is constantly
started, and in certain time and with the established frequency
carries out backup.
All adjustments of the program are saved automatically
into the INI-file and are restored at the next launch. Thats
why, in the case when it is necessary to use the program for the
regular carrying out of the backup of all or several databases it
is recommended (having adjusted the scheduler beforehand) to launch
the utility either together with the MySQL server or when launching
Windows (having placed the icon of the program into the folder Autostart).
The program also provides an opportunity
of archiving backup files after carrying out the backup.
This will allow to reduce considerably the place
on a hard disk, occupied by these files. Archiving can be carried
out with the help of any external archive program, which is available
(RAR, ZIP, ARJ and so on).
The result of work of the program is the SQL-script,
which contains everything necessary for the full restoring of the
database to the condition, which was at the moment of the carrying
out of backup.
