How are database backups for MySQL created?

Database Vault uses the official mysqldump command line utility to create database backups. Database Vault requires the full path to the mysqldump utility location (Usually located in the bin directory where MySQL Server is installed to) in order to create backups.

Database Vault has the ability to create backups of remote MySQL Servers through the mysqldump utility. Even if you do not have MySQL installed on the same server as Database Vault, as long as you have the mysqldump utility on your computer, we can create database backups.
