the script depends on xmlstarlet tool to read Koha configuration file

You have 2 options:
1) Install xmlstarlet
2) Edit the script and fill by hand the required data: koha db name, user,
password, host, port, etc.

Or you can read the script to look how the backup is made, then write your
own script. The important line is the one with "mysqldump"
