One backup script that does it all.

This integrates with Monolith, but the database update function can be stripped out for use without Monolith. The idea is that this script is a wrapper for mysqldump that does backup file consistency checking, email reporting, file based logging and directory pruning.

I used to have one script for daily, weekly, and monthly all running out of /etc/cron.daily /etc/cron.weekly /etc/cron.monthly - respectively. But maintaining 3 scripts is foolish if one can do everything. So I added some variables to check day of week and day of month to achieve this.

Enjoy the code. Script Link here.
