Improve the mysqldump in the Backup
Hello Community,

i checked the mysqldump function in the backupscript
What do you think about to improve this line (line 292):
my $db_backupcmd = "$main::cfg{'CMD_MYSQLDUMP'} --add-drop-table -u\'$dbuser\' -p\'$dbpass\' \'$db_name\' >\'$db_backup_file\'";
to this one:
my $db_backupcmd = "$main::cfg{'CMD_MYSQLDUMP'} --add-drop-table --allow-keywords --quote-names -u\'$dbuser\' -p\'$dbpass\' \'$db_name\' >\'$db_backup_file\'";

Because Joomla (and maybe other webapps) use MySQL functions like "option" or "fulltext" as field name. And without the option " --allow-keywords --quote-names" your are not able to restore your DB. MySQL run into the function and did not interpret it as a field.
