    MySQL automated backup

    Does anyone know of a good, prefereably free program to backup multiple MySQL schemas automatically everyday. The DB is hosted on Windows not Linux. It is on a remote server which I have access to and can backup either to a directory on that server or somewhere remotely.

    I sometimes use the MySQL administrator but it doesn't seem to work all the time.

    Thanks.

    you can use task scheduler on the server to run mysqldump on a regular basis.

    MYSQL ADMIN, at least on my 5.0.x install running on a win XP pro, creates backups as TASK SCHEDULER task...

    so the ADMIN doesnt even need to be running since TS runs as a service...
