Export data as CSV with nightly backup #713
Monica needs an easy way to back up data. It currently has an Export Data function that is designed for a use case of someone moving from the hosted version of Monica to the personal version and assumes the person doing it has MySQL experience because the data is in SQL format.
The ideal solution would be an export to a CSV file that could be scheduled to occur nightly. Further, the data should be encrypted, as should all of Monica's data, but encryption could be a later release. For now the primary importance is providing simple backup to protect from data loss.
When you say, ideally a CSV, would an SQL dump still not be better so you can import this data back into a Monica instance?
