Description
-----------
phpMyBackup creates backups from a mySQL-Database at given time intervals and
stores them in a gz-compressed file on your webserver. An interface to restore
the database is included.

Requirements
------------
- PHP3/4 enabled Webserver
- MySQL database
- optional: PHP with zlib-support for compression

Installation
------------
Save the files "backup.php" and "restore.php" anywhere on your webserver, for
example create a directory "phpmybackup" and put the files in it. You should
protect this directory with a .htaccess file! Change the variables at the top
of "backup.php" to your needs.
To execute "backup.php", you can add the lines
   <?
   include "phpmybackup/backup.php";
   ?>
at the bottom of a frequently accessed file, for example your index page.

To restore the database, go to "phpmybackup/restore.php" and choose the file
you want to restore.
