How to backup MySQL database on Windows?

I have WampServer 2.0 that is installed on Windows on my laptop.

I'm running on it an application that I wrote. The application is working with MySQL database.

I would like to make backups of this database periodically.

How this can be done ?

How could I define cron on Windows ?

Answer Source

The rough equivalent of crontab -e for Windows is the at command, as in:

at 22:00 /every:M,T,W,Th,F C:\path\to\mysql\bin\mysqldump.exe ...

Running the at command by itself lists the tasks you've created using at.

The mysqldump documentation is here.
