How do I create a cron job to backup my MySQL database on Cloud Sites?


We suggest using the Scheduled Backup Tool to help schedule backups via cron job.  For more information see Scheduled Backup -- Cloud Sites to Cloud Files.

Advanced users can also set up their own database backups using a shell script running mysqldump via cron.
