Example 1:
The simplest way to see what is going on inside your code is to temporarily add echo statements for variables to show their values on the screen. For example, say you want to know what the value of some variables are when $i is "5". You could use code like this:
for ( $i = 0; $i < 10; $i++ ) {

Cumulative Backups

This is a backup of the differences since the last FULL backup, so each cumulative backup gets bigger each cycle as it is also backing up data previously backup, since the last FULL backup.
