I have over 50 sites on a host that provides Cpanel for each site.
Through the Cpanel, I can do manual backups of the public_html directory, was well as the MySQL databases for each site, and have had those backups mailed to me quite successfully, but to do each site manually on a weekly basis takes a tremendous amount of time.
There is also a cronjob option, which I have tried to use - but I obviously haven't a clue of how to get it to work correctly. I find any "instructions" concerning the cron job on Cpanel to be either severly lacking or well over my newbie head.
What I would like to do is set up a cron job for each of the sites that backs up not only the databases, but also the public_html directories, zip or tar those, and email them to me on a weekly basis.
I've found scripts for the databases, but not for the public_html directories - but also, those databases just save to a folder on the server, I am not emailed the databases themselves.
Does ANYONE have such a script available that would backup both the databases and specified directories, condense them and email them on a weekly basis?
Or am I just shooting the moon at this point?
Thanks for your time concerning my request.
