I have a Virtual Private Server with a Plesk control panel and Ubuntu installed in the back end.
Over the last year it grew very large beyond my expectations and I do not have any backups. I am quite desperate to have it secured quickly just in case.
When I try to do a dump, phpMyAdmin just crashes because the DB weighs 5Gb in total, I know this is an extreme amount of data but this was a bit unforseen. I hope somebody can suggest a script or application that could maybe automate a gradual backup. I would usually do a manual table by table but the structure is also huge so that will take me ages.
The only backup solution available on the panel is myLittleBackup but i am unable to install this because it requires ASP.NET
