About Databackup

Databackup is a simple extra (snippet) for MODX Revolution that will backup your MySQL database as one sql dump and then each table as a SQL dump. So if you had a custom extra that failed you can easily restore one or more tables that have been messed up. This snippet is meant to be used with CronManager. If you can't use that extra then use it with getCache. You can also back up all of you MySQL DBs with this script. If you are using MSSQL look at the source and it should be easy to make it work for MSSQL.
