Backup database using php code

Hello Frineds,
Below code would take entire database backup and store it in the current folder. You can run this script automatically using crop job, so that you would have your database backup for every day or every week as you wish.

//backup_tables('localhost','root','rot','database_name','table_name'); //To backup one specific table
backup_tables('localhost','root','rot','database_name'); // To backup entire database
/* backup the db OR just a table */
function backup_tables($host,$user,$pass,$name,$tables = '*')
{

$link = mysql_connect($host,$user,$pass);
mysql_select_db($name,$link);

//get all of the tables
if($tables == '*')
{
$tables = array();
$result = mysql_query('SHOW TABLES');
while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result))
{
$tables[] = $row[0];
}
}
else
{
$tables = is_array($tables) ? $tables : explode(',',$tables);
}

//cycle through
foreach($tables as $table)
{
$result = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM '.$table);
$num_fields = mysql_num_fields($result);

$return.= 'DROP TABLE '.$table.';';
$row2 = mysql_fetch_row(mysql_query('SHOW CREATE TABLE '.$table));
$return.= "\n\n".$row2[1].";\n\n";

for ($i = 0; $i < $num_fields; $i++)
{
while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result))
{
$return.= 'INSERT INTO '.$table.' VALUES(';
for($j=0; $j<$num_fields; $j++)
{
$row[$j] = addslashes($row[$j]);
$row[$j] = ereg_replace("\n","\\n",$row[$j]);
if (isset($row[$j])) { $return.= '"'.$row[$j].'"' ; } else { $return.= '""'; }
if ($j<($num_fields-1)) { $return.= ','; }
}
$return.= ");\n";
}
}
$return.="\n\n\n";
}

//save file
$handle = fopen('db-backup-'.time().'-'.(md5(implode(',',$tables))).'.sql','w+');
fwrite($handle,$return);
fclose($handle);
}
?>
