Does anyone know of a good way to set up an automated backup of our MySQL DB on a Godaddy Windows account? Most articles I have found talk about using mysqldump. But I can't figure out how to do that in a Windows environment. There is a task scheduler in the account settings with plenty of options for when to run the task. There is also a line for "Path to an executable file" and a line for "Arguments". Talking with Godaddy support, all they tell me is that I can run an aspx file or a php file in the task scheduler. No more details. Has anyone done this before?
Update: What I am trying to do is what this guy did: http://www.htpcbeginner.com/automatic-mysql-database-backup-on-godaddy/ He created a bash script to run as a cron job that does automatic daily, weekly, and monthly backups. The script will also automatically delete the old backups based on configured settings. So I guess my options are to emulate this script in a aspx or php file, correct?
