I am preparing a script to create backups at a specific time (preferably 3.00 in the morning when I am sleeping). I am able to prepare the script. But what how can I it to run in the morning?

I am using the bash script and I am working with Linux RedHat 7.0.

I really would appreciate an answer.

Sponiza :rolleyes:

    • use cron 'man cron' and 'man crontab' for all the info.

    • I also found the Scheduling in Linux NHF (http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel/misc/scheduling.html) VERY Helpful!
