Debian MySQL & OpenLDAP - file level backup

Hi All,

The MySQL & OpenLDAP database on my Debian are very lightly updated.
Usually I tar everything on / including the databases.
The restore works OK on another machine.

I want to know whether its safe to do file level backup of databases like this ?

Do the MySQL & OpenLDAP databases have mechanisms to start even if some records are inconsistent ?

use MySQL::Diff; my $md = MySQL::Diff->new( %options ); my $db1 = $md->register_db($ARGV[0], 1); my $db2 = $md->register_db($ARGV[1], 2); my $diffs = $md->diff(); DESCRIPTION
