Hi Guys,

What would be the best way to backup my Webserver tower? Should I just copy the C:/ directories into a backup folder on another drive? Or onto a DVD? Or is there proggies that do it?
Thanks in advance,

Heeter

When I work on my localhost, I just stop the mysql services (via services.msc) and copy the entire folder out.

Obviously can't do that here so use " mysqldump --opt > backup.sql "
(be damn careful with that <> basically the arrow points in the direction of data flow -- easy to remember)

Is the SQL all you need to back up for VB?
