Step 1 Register here for free webdev cloud dropbox account
Step 2 download script

   The script dumps all of your MySQL databases as separate files.

   The script backs up all of your Web files (e.g: root of all of your virtual hosts).

   The script compresses your web-root and databases to a single archive.

   The script uploads the compressed archive into a folder in Dropbox.

   After the upload, the script cleans the temporary files (dumps, the archive itself)

   The script makes sure that you always have the newest Dropbox-uploader script.

You may easily add this script to your crontab, and just forget about it
DBUSER="root" #MySQL user that can dump all databases
DBPASSWORD="" #MySQL password

And make sure the scripts are only readable by the owner, not group!! (chmod 700)
Works great, thanks Smile
