dix (Database Import eXport)

dix is a simple console application that will make your life easier if you are working with MySQL databases. Let's say that you are working with some PHP framework or CMS, and that you want to test a new module/plugin/add-on, or maybe you just want to upgrade to the latest version. The very first thing you should do is to make a backup of your database. Doing this will save you a lot of headache if something goes wrong.
