I just spent a few

I just spent a few hours getting WorldBeatPlanet back up. BounceWeb had a serious hardware crash, resulting in loss of many accounts & all data. Thankfully I always keep backups of all of my code on my own machine. Unfortunately all of the content is in a MySQL database and my SQL backup was almost a month old.

This time I plan to set up a cron job to automatically back it up & send a copy to my machine. I’ve been able to do that easily with MacMegasite, since I can connect to their server remotely from mysqldump running on my own machine. However, bounceweb doesn’t allow remote connections to mysql, so I’ll have to set up a job on their server with their help.
