I set the Cron Jobs (Advanced) in my CPanel to make backups each day, each week and each month, at a certain time and added an email address where the Cron Output ought to be sent. I am not getting any information nor is the Cron Job making any backups as it is supposed to. Am I doing something wrong ?
Is there a way to automatically generate a full backup and then store it on my computer without having to manually make one and then download it to a backup drive on my computer? When making a backup using the Cron Job Tab does it generate a backup that contains the Home Directory Backup as well as a MySQL Database Backup? Or does one need to make a second entry in the Cron Job to back up the MySQL Database?
Thanks for any information or pointing me to any article or knowledge base etc. regarding this..
little google search ;) http://ifranky.com/geekery/mysql-automatic-backup-cron/
I would highly recommend you trying out BqBackup. They offer a $5/10GB of space per month, where you can store your database and anything on you servers to be compressed and transferred to their servers (Offsite backups)
