    Write a shell script that will "tar -czf filename /home/user/public_html" where you've set a filename string and include the current date in the filename string - easiest way probably.

    Use date formatting options. For dd:mm:yyyy use:

    Code:
    date +"%d%m%Y"

    you shouldn't use a single quote --> '
    but the following --> `

    so:

    Code:
    mkdir `date +"%d%b%Y"`
