Crontab Command

software development

#1

Hi, I am using the automatic backup crontab command from the wiki. http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Automatic_Backup

And a great thanks to Matttail for writing it, it was easy to understand.

Does anyone know how I need to change this code:
27 23 * * 3 /home/username/backups/mysql.sh

which will backup every wednesday at 11:27pm

to Backup daily at 2am?

thanks


#2

man 5 crontab

but basically, something like

3 2 * * *

(3 minutes after 2 daily)

Glad you like it. I added a link in the article to the Crontab article in the wiki so you others can see how to change the time.
