I am working on the localhost and feeding some data in mysql database. I have installed mysql and php with wamp server. So, I want to take backup of my database daily. So, How can I do that?
Note: I don't want to take the backup of unnecessary files because I want to save the disk space. Only those files which contains my data of mysql database.

no, I don't want to do backup using php. If you can tell me, which files contains my data, I will copy these files to some save place.

Use mysqldump — A Database Backup Program[^]. Schedule it to run via crontab (Unix) or Windows Scheduler in Windows.
