Backup all mysql databases

I created an easy way to backup all mysql databases
/mnt/srv-ttp-nas/ is a location on a local NAS

sleep 10

BACKUP_DIR = "/mnt/srv-ttp-nas/bu/databases"

#find all databasses and backup them
databases=`mysql --user=$DB_USER --password=$DB_PASS -e "SHOW DATABASES;" | tr -d "| " | grep -v Database`

for db in $databases; do
        echo "Dumping database: $db"
        mysqldump $db -u $DB_USER -p --password=$DB_PASS | gzip > "/mnt/srv-ttp-nas/databases/"`date +%Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S`-$db.sql.gz

#remove files older than one month
find /mnt/srv-ttp-nas/databases/* -mtime +31 -exec rm {} \;

The power of this script is that if you add a new database this will automaticly be added.

Add to crontab to backup every 6 hours.

sudo crontab -e
0 0,6,12,18 * * * /home/tom/
