Backing Up Databases

Please be aware that Backup+ clients do not have native support to back up running database systems, such as Microsoft SQL server 2005, MySQL and PostgreSQL.

Before attempting a database backup with the Backup+ service, you should either manually run a database dump (such as psql_dump for PostgreSQL or mysqldump for MySQL) to store your current datasets to a static file or files, or script such a dump into your backup job shell script or the Pre- and Post-Actions in Handy Backup.
