    Can someone post how to set up a cron job to auto backup and email me the file? I am using cron on my server not wp-cron

    I have wp 2.02 and database backup 1.7

    Thanks!!

    Depending on your server, this still works for me:

    If not - because do several tests - check the email you do get and ask your host if the errors in that are fixable.

    The above only does the database - not the full files too.

    I saw that post but it looked so complicated when i first read it. Since then i set up a cron job to post my delicious posts and this seemed quite dooable.

    Done in no time! thanks!

    My host decided to take a dump and mySQL database that was uploaded was 2 weeks old. I can't believe I did not do this earlier.

    Thanks Again
