I'm working on a remote backup solution for a small website. I want to
download a daily copy of a MySQL database. I'd prefer to send it over
ssh, so I'm thinking of something like this:
ssh me at server.com "mysqldump db_name -u me --password=secret | gzip -c"
This would work except that I still need to type the ssh password. Is it
possible to specify the ssh password in the command line? Or do
something else so I can run this on a script?
