I set up cronuser with only mysql SELECT privileges. That's what it says here...




...and I will be using this on a shared hosting account (Hostgator).


Any other suggestions?



#!/bin/bash #Cron Backup Script #Last updated Oct 31, 2015 NOW=$(date +"%Y-%m-%d") tar cfz ~/backups/backup_$NOW.tar.gz ~/public_html mysqldump -u cronuser -pcronuserpassword databasename | gzip > ~/backups/backupdb_$NOW.sql.gz

First attempt is giving me this error...

/bin/sh: /home4/myacct/backups/bscript.sh: /bin/bash^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory



Oh, that is caused by CR-LF characters in the file, which Linux apparently doesn't like. Changing them to Unix-returns fixed it.


Have also added another line...

find ~/backups/*.gz -mtime +5 -exec rm {} ;
