Scheduling backups

Is it possible to schedule backups with your script?  Can it be run from a cron job?

Re: Scheduling backups

It's not been tested with cron jobs but I think it should work.

Once you've configured your settings its a simple case of calling backup.php?c=backupdefault and that will do the backup as specified in your settings (use backup.php?c=backupemaildefault if you want the backup emailed to you).

I'm not sure how cron jobs and loging in works, but you can stop the log-on feature by commenting out line 20 of backup.php (it looks like this: login()wink.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for using Idut Backup so soon after it was released!
