Backup Issues with FogBugZ

One BIG issue we consider with any new tools is backup issues.

So:

1) How do I perform a nightly backup of FogBUGZ?

2) Can I run just one command, that will zip up all I need to backup into one file, and then backup that file?

3) If yes to 2), does that command exist right now?

You just need the database and the FileUploads folder to back it up.

FogBugz\FileUploads
FogBugz\Accessories\FogBugz.mdb

If you are using sqlserver or mysql, then you don't need the .mdb you just need to use your normal database backup procedures.

I'm sure there is a command line to zip up the FileUploads directory for winzip, or a gnu zip utility.

Alternatively you can just zip up the entire FogBUGZ directory.. It's not that much bigger including the ASP/PHP files...
