Could anyone teach me how to create my own cron job please ...
I need the cron job to backup my site's data and mysql database on a daily basis at say .... 6 am - need information for 2 scenarios
(a) To get the cron job to email the backups to me at 6am daily - I understand that I will need to have a large enough mailbox to accomodate the backups - my site is only about 1MB big and the mysql is pushing 1MB so I am sure that it will not give me any problems with a 10MB mailbox.
(b) To get the cron job to ftp the backups to another ftp server.
i have seen a number of mysql backup scripts posted on this site. I would recommend doing a search as i just asked a similar question a couple weeks ago....with a little different twist....and had some excellent examples posted.
