We are quite stuck with which solution to choose for this backup issue:
What should happen: First, there should be an interface were to choose several sql databases (sort of checkboxes or whatsoever), also a few folders should be backed up -> this could be part of the program or could be seperate, I think about an interface were to select folders, but a txt file (or xml) with paths-to-folders is as good. Next, everything should be 7Zipped, SQL-DB and files seperate. Eventually everything should be copied to a local network drive after which copied via FTP.
Also important; it could be programmed or (partly) bought but I can't be one of those expensive backup tools $1000+ etc.
I already found this fairly priced tool that does already most of the tasks
7ZIP and copy to ftp
For your information: we had a kind of self-made tool created by a collegue (some time ago) but it became very untrustworthy and as the databases grew it couldn't handle it anymore... moving on
Please come up with suggestions. Thanks in advance!
