[CentOS] What to backup?

Hi All,

I am now working on a plan of what to backup from various servers that I have running

I run Apache, so httpd.conf and /var/www/html

I run Zimbra currently, so /opt/zimbra/store, /opt/zimbra/my.cnf and /opt/zimbra/db/

I run MySQL, so /etc/my.cnf and /var/lib/mysql 

Can I simply write a bash script to tar.gz these areas, scp them and put it in a cron job?

Is there anything special that I have to do with MySQL since it is running?

If helpful, I can take what I learn and update the Wiki if there is not already a procedure for doing these operations on it.
