Script is inspired by https://gist.github.com/henrik/5ebff4ba7d18df85144520e20210a178

Use these files at your own risk.

Instructions:

Download and make executable

git clone git@github.com:alanvardy/dbbackup.git
cd dbbackup
chmod +x dbbackup.sh

Edit your settings file

gedit settings.conf

Run that script

./dbbackup.sh

You will be asked to authorize gdrive to access your Google Drive the first time you run it.
