Re: what to do about a database?

I would dump the database to CSV files - MYSQL can do this quite easily.
Then you can version the CSV files, which are just text.

When you want to rebuild, just create an empty database and read it all
in. PHP has a pretty good module for parsing CSV files, I believe.

Might not work so well for very large tables, and might conflict with
automatically incremented primary keys, so ymmv.
