    MySQLDump cron script

    Hi,

    I am currently using MySQLDumper to dump my databases manually. I would like to setup a weekly automatic backup that MySQLDumper can use. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a cron script. I am completely new to .pl and am not sure where to start. Thanks in advance!

    It may be faster to create a shell script that executes MySQLDumper directly, unless you need to run it through Perl. You can schedule the shell script to execute via cron.

    I got it to work via Crontab in Plesk. Pointed it right to crondump.pl file that comes with MySQLDumper.
