Drupal 7 - Create a user with custom fields based on Taxonomy terms

Let say we have a travel-website. Each user has fields like :
- My Hometown (single entry)
- Visited cities (multiple entries)
- Cities I want to visit (multiple entries)

And we want to restore user-db from an extern-file. We have to prepare taxonomy terms and assign IDs before starting insert data. After parsing data, we can create each user with following php-code.

$uname = "Alex Miller";
$umail = "alex.miller@example.com";

$hometown_id = 123;
$visited_city1 = 345;
$visited_city2 = 456;

$tovisit_city1 = 678;
$tovisit_city2 = 789;

Backup all MySQL databases automagicly with the PHP admin script

Server administration software like Cpanel, Plesl, Webmin etc have already their backup solutions. But they are runned mostly once a week or max a day because of performance reasons. Let say we just want to backup all of our mysql-databases every 2 hours.

To do this:

  • Create a directory like /backup/mysql
  • Save code below under something like backup_mysql.php
  • Chmod it to 755
  • Run it manually or with cronjobs /root/scripts/backup_mysql.php
// use this if your php.ini does not allow shell etc #!/usr/bin/php -n
