It is necessary to thus envisage the rights of writing in this repertory. And to have accesses admin on the waiter of MySQL databases.

3. script

To create following script through your preferred text editor and to safeguard it with the .sh extension

#! /bin/sh
user= " - U root "
mdp= " - pvotremotdepasse "
chm= " /srv/www/htdocs/glpi/files/_dumps "
# Dump bases GLPI
mysqldump $user $mdp glpi > $chm/$ (date +%Y-%m-%d).glpi.backup.sql

4. Scheduling

The scheduler should now be parametrized, that is to say the crontab while launching the following order:

crontab - E

It is then necessary to add the following line to carry out the daily safeguard:

55 23 *** HS /srv/www/htdocs/glpi/

5. Results

Thus, base GLPI is safeguarded daily and is recopied in the repertory _dumps.

6. Advantages and benefit

The advantage of this automated backup makes it possible the administrator to have an instantaneous renewal of activity if base GLPI is corrupted in the night and thus to profit from a fresh backup of the day before.
