Question:
Step 3 of the backup procedure for the CAPC mysql database is to stop all the services.  Is this step required? 
Answer:
Yes, it is always best practice to stop services first, to prevent writes to the database from happening while the backup is occurring.  Failing to stop services could slow down the backup or possibly cause table corruption
