Issues with Cron Backup script


#1

Hi All,

I’ve been trying to follow the tutorial at here, but I keep getting the following error message when I run the script (either via cron, or terminal):

[quote]tar: ./\224C-INSTITUTE.COM\224: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
./c-institutecom_backup.sh: line 32: /usr/bin/mysqldump: No such file or directory
[/quote]

In addtion, it creates a directory “?” with the path /home/<my DH username/backups/mysql/08 which contains 20kb SQL files full of errors.

Sorry for being clueless, i’ve tried to read up on this, but the automatic backups article on the wiki seems just redirects to an article on domain restore.

Thanks,
Nick
