Mysql Backup To Dropbox
This script you will need to run once manually to link to your dropbox folder.
chmod 777 backupsql.sh ./backupsql.sh
Once it's confirmed working then add it to the crontab.
Dropbox uploader script originally from - https://github.com/andreafabrizi/Dropbox-Uploader/
You will need to alter the following in backupsql.sh

It's set to delete files older than 5 days.
You can alter this by changing the following line:
