  • Backup Script Help

    Hey I know this has been covered in another post, but I have a specific Question, and my brain is to fried to figure it out, so accept my Apologies.

    I want to have a A backup script that will:
    1. Back it Up every 12 hours or 24 HOurs
    2. gZIP it
    3. Store it Away on the Server with a Date in the File Name
    4. Keep the last 7 Backups on the Server
    5. e-mail me weekly 1 backup
    6. Only keep the Last 10 Backups
    The reason i want it this way, is because if my backup was e-mailed to me DAILY or every 12 hours it would use a lot of bandwith, so if the db is corrupted, i have the last 10 backups on the server... HOwever if the server goes down totally, and all data is destroyed, the oldest backup i have in my e-mail is 7 days old.

    Anyone have any suggestions or mordifications to a script I can implement, thanks?
