PHP Backup to WebDav Server

This package can backup files and a database to a WebDav server.

It takes the path of a given local directory and creates a PHAR archive with the files of the directory.

The base class can also connect to a given database using PDO and generate a backup file with SQL statements to recreate the database. The generated SQL file is also added to the PHAR archive.

The PHAR archive is compressed and transferred to a given remote server using the WebDAV protocol.

The package comes with several sub-classes specialized in configuring the connection to different WebDAV servers.
