Hi I've set my crontab as follows :
30 17 * * * sh /bin/automysqlbackup.sh.2.5
The script I'm using to function as a cron job is a database backup script, which is automysqlbackup .So by right my daily backups should be at 5.30 p.m in the evenings.
But I noticed that my database does not backup on Saturdays. It backs up on Sundays, but not Saturdays.
There is another default crontab scipt in the /etc directory :
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly
Does this play a part in not creating a backup on Saturdays?
I do not know why this should affect the backing up because I've not placed the automysqlbackup script in the cron.daily directory.
Why does the database not backup on Saturdays at all, but does backup on Sundays at 5.30 p.m?
