Simple-backup

<img src="/_docs/store_export.PNG"/><br/> A simple mysql database backup library for php. This library helps you backup your mysql database to a directory in your project or download it to your machine.

The library also allows you import or restore a database without stress. Follow the instructions below to get started.

Installation

Open your terminal or command prompt and type the below command:

composer require coderatio/simple-backup

New in version 1.0.1

  1. You can now chain static `::start()` on `SimpleBackup class.
  2. This version includes fluent chaining of database settings.
  3. Added `->includeOnly(array $tables)` which allows you to export data for only tables mentioned in `$tables` variable.
  4. Added `->excludeOnly(array $tables)` which removes the inclussion of tables mentioned in `$tables` variable during export.

(v1.0.1) Exporting specific tables only

  SimpleBackup::start()
    ->setDbName('db_name')
    ->setDbUser('db_username')
    ->setDbPassword('db_password')
    ->includeOnly(['carts', 'houses', 'categories'])
    ->then()->storeAfterExportTo('backups')
    ->then()->getResponse();

(v1.0.1) Excluding specific tables only

  SimpleBackup::start()
    ->setDbName('db_name')
    ->setDbUser('db_username')
    ->setDbPassword('db_password')
    ->excludeOnly(['users', 'posts'])
    ->then()->storeAfterExportTo('backups')
    ->then()->getResponse();

Exporting

The export can be done in two ways. 1. Store in a directory 2. Download to your machine

1-- Store in a directory

To store the export in a directory, do this:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Coderatio\SimpleBackup\SimpleBackup;

// Set the database to backup
$simpleBackup = SimpleBackup::setDatabase(['db_name', 'db_user', 'db_password', 'db_host'])
  ->storeAfterExportTo('pathtostore', 'file_name (optional)');

To get the stored file name, you can echo it out like this:

echo $simpleBackup->getExportedName();

You can also get the reponse by doing this:

/
* @return object
/
var_dump($simpleBackup->getResponse());

2-- Download

To download the export to your machine, do this:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Coderatio\SimpleBackup\SimpleBackup;

// Set the database to backup
$simpleBackup = SimpleBackup::setDatabase(['db_name', 'db_user', 'db_password', 'db_host'])
  ->downloadAfterExport($file_name (optional));

If $file_name isn't provided, a random name will be generated for the download.

Adding where clauses to tables

To add where clauses as you would do on SQL, you can do this before exporting:

<b>Note:</b> $tables variable must be an associative array e.g

$tables = [
  'users' => 'is_active = true'
];

$simpleBackup->setTableConditions(array $tables);

Setting rows limit on tables

To limit how many rows to be included in your backup for a table, do this before exporting:

<b>Note:</b> Just like adding where clauses, the $tables variable here must be an associative array. e.g

$tables = [
  'users' => 50,
  'posts' => 50
]
$simpleBackup->setTableLimitsOn(array $tables);

Importing

This package makes importing or restoring your mysql database easy. To import your database, do this:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Coderatio\SimpleBackup\SimpleBackup;

// Set the database to backup
$simpleBackup = SimpleBackup::setDatabase(['db_name', 'db_user', 'db_password', 'db_host (optional)']])
    ->importFrom('pathtosql_file or sql_contents');

/
* You can then dump the response like this. 
*
* @return object
/
var_dump($simpleBackup->getResponse());

<b>Note:</b> You can provide sql statements as the parameter. You may also overwrite the database configuration by passing it as second parameter to the importFrom(). e.g importFrom(pathtosql_file, array $db_config);.

Todo

  1. Add a scheduler method to use with cron
  2. Store backup in Dropbox, Google Drive.
  3. Send backup to emails
