mysql backup script updates

The VRL servers now have a new backup script that does:

  • dump of all of the databases from a mysql instance
  • sha256 checksumming of db backups
  • sha256 checksumming tarballs of multiple db backups
  • gpg encryption of the tarballs once they are assembled
  • deletion of backup files and other files older than 14 days

The script needs more work before it will be published in a public git repository
