    Hi.

    I have a number of sites inslatted using Joomla and am currently using a 3rd party tool to backup the sites which is fine. However, it's been upgraded recently and now I can't do it remotely so I have to login to each site, backup, download the file and then delete it from the server. Not a hard task, but multiply it by 40+ websites...!

    So, I'm thinking of using cron because all I really need to do is:
    • Backup all the files and directories
    • Grab the MySQL data
    • Download this
    • Remove the backup file from the server
    I've managed to do this using the wizard in cPanel but I'd like to do it through Cron because then I can get one script working perfectly and copy it to all the other websites. However... Is what I want to do even possible...?
