Re: Any Special Requirements For Backing Up My Database?

Hi,

If you're using innodb, yes the db must be off during backup for consistency. If you're using Myisam table type, no but be sure to flush tables before and there's no updates/insert/replace queries during backup... or use FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK command.

Hope this help you.
Benjamin
