    Hello,

    I am sharing here how we can take backup of our Project mysql database file and upload it in our Dropbox Account. Advantage using this feature is we can store our database backup in our Dropbox account daily. We can set our script as a cron job working in every suitable time.

    Here is the code to take backup of database and upload it in server and dropbox both.

    backupTables('localhost', 'root', 'password', 'database_name');
    
    /* backup the db OR just a table */
    
    function backupTables($host, $user, $pass, $name, $tables = '*') {
    
        $link = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pass);
        mysql_select_db($name, $link);
    
        //Get all of the tables
        if ($tables == '*') {
            $tables = array();
            $result = mysql_query('SHOW TABLES');
            while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
                $tables[] = $row[0];
            }
        } else {
            $tables = is_array($tables) ? $tables : explode(',', $tables);
        }
    
        //cycle through
        foreach ($tables as $table) {
            $result = mysql_query('SELECT * FROM ' . $table);
            $num_fields = mysql_num_fields($result);
    
            $return.= 'DROP TABLE ' . $table . ';';
            $row2 = mysql_fetch_row(mysql_query('SHOW CREATE TABLE ' . $table));
            $return.= "\n\n" . $row2[1] . ";\n\n";
    
            for ($i = 0; $i < $num_fields; $i++) {
                while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($result)) {
                    $return.= 'INSERT INTO ' . $table . ' VALUES(';
                    for ($j = 0; $j < $num_fields; $j++) {
                        $row[$j] = addslashes($row[$j]);
                        $row[$j] = ereg_replace("\n", "\\n", $row[$j]);
                        if (isset($row[$j])) {
                            $return.= '"' . $row[$j] . '"';
                        } else {
                            $return.= '""';
                        }
                        if ($j < ($num_fields - 1)) {
                            $return.= ',';
                        }
                    }
                    $return.= ");\n";
                }
            }
            $return.="\n\n\n";
        }
    
        //save file
        $file = 'db_backups/Ongeza-' . date("d-m-Y") . '-' . '.sql'; // (md5(implode(',', $tables))) .
        $handle = fopen($file, 'w+');
        fwrite($handle, $return);
        fclose($handle);
        chmod($file, 0755);
        echo "SUCCESS of File uploading";
        echo "\r\n";
        importFileToDropBox($file);
    }
    
     // Import backedup sql file to Dropbox.
    function importFileToDropBox($file) {
        error_reporting(E_ALL);
        require_once("DropboxClient.php");

        if ($todayDate === $lastDate) {
            for ($day = $lastDay - 1; $day >= 1; $day--) {
                $fileName = "Ongeza-" . $day . "-" . date("m-Y") . "-.sql";
                $dropbox->Delete("/$fileName");
                unlink("db_backups/$fileName");
                //echo $fileName . " file is deleted<br />";
            }
        }
    }
    
    // store_token, load_token, delete_token are SAMPLE functions! please replace with your own!
    function store_token($token, $name) {
        file_put_contents("tokens/$name.token", serialize($token));
    }

            if (empty($request_token)) {
                die('Request token not found!');
            }

            $access_token = $dropbox->GetAccessToken($request_token);
            store_token($access_token, "access");
            delete_token($_GET['oauth_token']);

            die("Authentication required. <a href='$auth_url'>Click here.</a>");
        }
    }
    

    importFileToDropBox() is a function which connects with DropBox API and upload file in Dropbox with parameter $file

    To download Dropbox API Please visit https://www.dropbox.com/developers/core/sdks/php Here we can find Sdk for php, similarly we can download Sdk for Android, iOS, Python, Java and Ruby. To implement Dropbox API we first need to create our account in dropbox.com and then create App. After creating an App we can find Secret Key and APP Key.

    for developers guide Please take a look http://dropbox.github.io/dropbox-sdk-php/api-docs/v1.1.x/

    Enjoy the code.
    Thanks
