Database backup script

Database backup script

I'm managing a local server on our campus that has virtualization and daily snapshots are taken.  However, we've had a couple of issues that we've had to roll back older snapshots and lost the data in a database. 

I'm wondering if others have an automated backup script for the webwork database and how you manage it (cron job or something else). I can probably write one, but it would be nice to see what others have done.

I posted some directions at When I get a second I will clean those up to point to a standalone config file rather than .my.cnf.
