1- mysqldump -uroot -ppassword --all-databases > /backup/backup.sql
2- create an account named backup on the remote CentOS system
3- on the centos that has the mysql database, run ssh-keygen -t rsa, answer all the prompts, leave key with no password.
4- on the CenOS that has the mysql database, cat /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub and paste its contents on the other CentOS system, at /home/backup/.ssh/authorized_keys.
5- the command to copy the database would be scp /backup/backup.sql root@othercentossystem:/home/backup/
6- create a script with commands 1 and 5 somewhere on the first centos box
7- open crontab -e on the mysql centos system and put:

00 3 * * * /place/where/you/saved/the/script/mysql-backup.sh

Save it! You should be good to go.

Hope this helps!
