MySQL Backup is a Perl script that uses mysqlshow to grab the database names and "show tables" to grab the table names for a user's account, and then uses mysqldump to save the data in a subdirectory named in the script. It then tars and gzips the files, using the date and time for the file name. It can be run from cron on a daily basis. It removes old files and has an option to email the gzip file to an admin, and/or FTP the file to a remote server. It also has options to use "select data into outfile" or a regular "select" for users who can't use mysqldump. It supports LARGE sets of databases and tables.
SyncML is the common language for synchronizing all devices and applications over any network. SyncML leverages eXtensible Markup Language (XML), making SyncML a truly future-proof platform. With SyncML, networked information can be synchronized with any mobile device, and mobile information can be synchronized with any networked applications. SyncML is an open standard.
logmover archives logfiles generated by the logrotate program. It renames the files using unique timestamps, moves them to an archive directory, and compresses them by using external compress programs like gzip and bzip2. The program is written in C, and is designed to be run by cron.
RawWrite for Windows is a replacement for the DOS-based rawrite, or rawwrite program (the DOS version does not work well under Win95, and does not work at all from NT). This version is designed to work under NT/2K/XP, and 95/98/ME. It has a simple GUI, which makes it easier for first time users to create their Linux boot disks.
REOBack Backup Solution (pronounced "Ray-o-back") is a simple backup solution designed for Linux users and system administrators. It is designed to be simple to set up, and easy to use. It is great as a quick solution for those who procrastinate about backups. It supports automatic full/incremental backups of files you define, remote backups via SCP, SMB, NFS, or FTP, as well as auto deletion of old backups.
rdiff-backup backs up one directory to another. The target directory ends up a copy of the source directory, but extra reverse diffs are stored in a special directory so you can still recover files lost some time ago. The idea is to combine the best features of a mirror and an incremental backup. rdiff-backup can also operate in a bandwidth- efficient manner over a pipe, like rsync. Thus you can use rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back up to a remote location, and only the differences will be transmitted. It can also handle symlinks, device files, permissions, ownership, etc., so it can be used on the entire file system.
