I'm still a noob to php and mysql but I managed to find a app that allows us to backup/restore all of our databases at once. MySQLDumper. All databases are backed up to a single directory, but now I need to backup the entire website. I tried a few cheap script tutorials but they only caused errors and I don't have time to build or learn the coding for an entire backup system with all the bells and whistles.
So what's the difference between gzip and zip and where can I find an easy solution to zipping up our entire website for a backup/restore or tranfer?
