Hey there everyone!
I have an issue with a script with which I had sweated much, and I can't suspend it even if I find another solution for what I want.
What I want would be the following:
A script that creates a full backup of a directory and all of its subdirectories and the mysql, uploads it to an external ftp server, and sends an email to me when it's done.
It says that it has error in the last line (88 : unexpected operator )
[: 88: 0: unexpected operator
It also has an error with the tar.gz, when I try to unpack with unrar gives this error:
! D:\_server_backup\incremental\04-08-2011\fs-i-04-08-2011-00h44m22s.tar.gz: Cannot open \opt\lampp\lib\VERSION (opt\lampp\htdocs\xampp\.version --> \opt\lampp\lib\VERSION) ! D:\_server_backup\incremental\04-08-2011\fs-i-04-08-2011-00h44m22s.tar.gz: Symbolic link points to missing file
I guess this is a permission issue, so I tried to run it in command line with sudo su:
I no longer have this error:
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
but I still have this one with the mysql:
(DBS="$($MYSQL -u $MUSER -h $MHOST -p$MPASS -Bse 'show databases')")
/home/pityu/Desktop/ftpbackup.sh: 51: -u: not found
The ftp successfully uploads all the files to my ftp server from the server from which I run the backup, can open the tar.gz file, just when I unpack it I have this strange error with .version :S
It just won't send me emails. I have Ubuntu server edition, the newest, which had not mail command, so I installed sendmail and some stuff.
I dont have mysql preinstalled, maybe thats the line 55 problem, I have Lampp (Xampp).
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestion.
