User Manual:Periodic Maintenance – MythTV
There are two things I really need to do. Do regular backups of my MythTV box, and start doing regular maintenance of the database. I have a script that will back up, compress and then use key atheticated SSH to store the backup on my main server. However, I never run it! I also spend time very infrequently repairing the MySQL database. I must set up some cron jobs to do both of these!!!
