[Melbourne-pm] Web client programming

Hey all,

I have a need to automate the backup of a web forum database (mysql).  However 
the only 'public' access to said database is via phpMyAdmin.

Before I go charging off trying to reinvent the wheel, does anybody know of 
any scripts or modules out there which might help me interact with phpMyAdmin 
so that the backup can be run from cron.  I realise it's a rather fragile 
approach (as in being at the mercy of updates to phpMyAdmin) but don't really 
have any alternative.

I'm already looking at the LWP modules as a starting point, but I'm hoping 
there's something a bit more ready-to-run out there.

Thanks for any suggestions.
