For the last day of 2012 we highlight MySQLDumper, a Web-based GUI for backing up and restoring MySQL databases.
Written in PHP, MySQLDumper isn't a must-have tool in Web development, but it's recommended for any usage scenario where a MySQL database is used to store sensitive or massive amounts of data.
The whole purpose of MySQLDumper is to create a simple way to back up and restore data, with plenty of configurable options and the ability to schedule backups and databases restores on a regular basis via a Perl cron script.
The extensive set of configuration settings span from backup locations to auto-deletion intervals for older database backups and up to sensitive data protection mechanisms.
The MySQLDumper source code is open sourced under the GPL license and freely available on SourceForge.
