plbackitup is a simple Perl script for backing up directories/files to a tarball. It uses a flat file database for selecting what to backup, and features logging, excludes, email notification, FTP backup files, scp files, and removing old tarballs in the backup directory. It can be run as a cron job or manually.

Release Notes: Since the new file extension for dB files backed up is .gz , those files wouldn't be FTP'd or removed if the script was set to delete files.
Release Notes: The ability to backup MySQL databases was added. An option for passive FTP transfers was added.
Release Notes: A fix for a bug which was not allowing scp to copy all the backup files, several new features including ftp and scp logging, and new usage output to the console.
Release Notes: A rewrite of one of the file deletion routines to fix a possible problem with the wrong files being deleted if the time/date stamp was altered, a few minor bugfixes, and command line output.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug which prevented FTPing the backup files to an FTP server when sending all the backup files.
