This class can generate PHP scripts that are MySQL backups.

It connects to a given MySQL server and extracts the list of all databases.

The class generates a PHP script with commands to execute queries that recreate the database tables and insert the records with the current values.

The generated backup PHP script is stored in a given file.

A common way to generate a backup of a database is to generate a file with the necessary SQL statements to recreate the database tables and their records.

This class provides a variant of that approach that consists on generating a script file with PHP commands, so if you want to restore the database you just need to execute the generated PHP script.
