One of the most important tasks any developer needs to do often is backup their MySQL database. In many cases, the database is what drives most of the website. While most web hosts do a daily backup of a customer’s database, relying on them to make backups and provide them at no cost is risky, to say the least. And often in many cases, you might need this backup database functionality within your application for your nontech-savvy users. I have been building an attendance system for a college project, So I needed this functionality in that application, I did some research and I found a script. In this post, i have a PHP script that does the backup process for your MySQL database. When this script is run, a database backup with the <code>.sql</code> extension will be created in the backup path specified.
