 Backup scripts for shared hosting services
============================================

If you only have access via FTP and PHPMySQLAdmin, there's still hope
to do automated backups!

How to backup your FTP directory
================================

Open your terminal, go to the directory where you want to store your
backup, and::

  python ftpmirror.py -l username -p password -r ftp.server.com path/to/directory/ localdirectory

This script comes from the examples of the Python standard
distribution.

How to backup your MySQL database
=================================

From the same directory, execute the following command::

 python backup.py --user=username --password=password http://url.to/phpmyadmin/ database destination.sql.bz2

This script comes from https://github.com/forsberg/misctools and depends
on the ``python-mechanize`` library.

That's all!
