Recommended Posts

Guys I do a cron job

but I do not want it to be SQL is there any command change


I can do automatic backup but the result is zip

Use a pipe to gzip by adding a line at the end:

mysqldump --opt -Q -u my_whmcs --password=mypass my_whmcs > /home/mine/backup/whmcs.sql | gzip -c > whmcs.sql.gz


That should do it. You might need to specify path, but I don't think so.

Trouble? man gzip might help...
