mysqlblasy is a Perl script for automating MySQL database backups. It uses "mysqldump" for dumping mysql databases to the files sytem. It was written with automated usage in mind. For example, it is silent during operation, and only produces noise on errors/problems. It rotates backups automatically to prevent the backup disk from getting full when the administrator is on vacation (or is lazy).

Release Notes: Code was moved to git.
Release Notes: Optional table optimization after dumping was added. Archive::ZIP is not required when running on Win32.
Release Notes: This release adds Win32 support.
Release Notes: The version number was bumped, and unused variables were removed.
Release Notes: The "defaults-extra-file" config option was added, which can be used instead of specifying the username/password/host directly in the config file. The "dbhost" config paramater is now also used for the backup filename. If you use the new "defaults-extra-file" for remote backups, this key is still needed to set the filename. Code formatting and minor fixes were done.
