Hi all,

I've seen a few post on this, but most over my head.

I have a DB on a GoDaddy account with dedicated IP. It has 3 tables total.

I'd like to know if there's a simple was to set up an auto-backup. I know I can go in a do it manually via PHP MyAdmin, but is there anyway to make it happen, say, weekly, and push the saved file somewhere into a backups folder on the server?

Just curious if anyone has basically written out a procedure for this already....

Thanks - Cory

I've set up scripts like the one khaledf suggested several times. To do it, you'll just need to set up a cron job in your GoDaddy account.
