You may need to schedule an automated database backup that will recur periodically. To do this, first of all, you will need to create a project file, containing backup settings. Once the project file is created, you have to schedule Windows task that will perform actions at a specific time or when a certain event occurs.
Specify Connection, Database, Path, Output filename. Click Next.
Select backup content. Click Next.
Select detailed backup options. Click Next.
Set the Errors handling and Log settings options. After that, click Save and either select Save Project to save a backup project or Save Command Line to save a backup script that you can later execute from the command line.
Enter path to the dbforgemysql.com file in Program/script. (The default path is C:\Program Files\Devart\dbForge Studio for MySQL\dbforgemysql.com.)
Also, make sure to specify arguments in the Add arguments field as follows:
/backup /connection:User Id=root;Host=db;Port=3309;Database=sakila;Character Set=utf8; /projectfile:C:\Users\Documents\dbForge Studio for MySQL\Export\sakila.backup
Check all specified settings once again and, if no changes are required, click Finish. Otherwise, click Back and make the needed changes.
