Large Database Backup is a class to back up large MySQL databases into multiple files. It can list the tables of a given MySQL database, and generate SQL statements to create and insert records with the current values of the table rows, as if it were creating a new database. The class stores the generated SQL statements in files. A full backup process can be split into multiple iterations so as to not exceed the PHP default script execution time limit. Each iteration dumps a limited number of table rows. An iteration can be executed by a script that redirects the page request to itself at the end to proceed to the next iteration.
