mysql backup question adendum


I want to thank everyone who contributed to my 'mysql backup question's 
thread. The purpose of the backups was to solidify my mantis bug 
tracking system which I'm setting up for my clients. The bug tracking 
software has full support for mysql, and none for postgres. So I'm stuck 
using mysql. The backup method I've put in place is a simple mysqldump 
procedure. Every 24 hours, I dump the database, copy the dump to a 
backup server where the dump file is kept in log rotation, and the 
latest version is restored into the mysql server running on the backup 
system. So, I have pseudo-replicated database, which replicates every 24 
hours, and a weeks worth of daily backups. So far, the size of the 
backup files is under 100Kbytes, which is nothing. Since the bug 
trackers are very very low volume, I think the backup model I've put 
together will suffice for a long time. 

I would perfer to use postgres, but since the bug tracker does not 
support it, I'll just live with mysql. I believe mysql will work 
perfectly well for the application/service and its scope I'm setting up. 

Cheers. Steve.
