New Plugin to Manage Your Backups

I just released a simple plugin that I use to backup and restore databases instead of using a mysql dump.

check out the plugin page

File structure will look like that:

ar-backup

I use this plugin to backup my apps running in production. When I need to debug an application, I just need to restore the db locally and debug. The fact that it uses fixtures helps me finding data quickly and I can easily decide to only restore few tables.

I also have a Capistrano recipe to create backups before each deployment.

oohh and the plugin is Sake compatible, give it a try :)

Enjoy
