Really thanks a lot,

But this command synchronizes folders ( puplic_html, and distention folder ), I wanted to zip the puplic_html for a backup using corntab.

So, would you please help me with this command.

Thanks

after a long search i found this line, and it worked,

tar -czf /home/user/distenation/public_html.gz.tar /home/user/public_html

also i could use tar - cvf command, for a public_html.tar backup.

but i'll try your line.

thanks a lot

corn job sounds obscene... sorry, just made me laugh alot for some reason. Keep in mind with this cron job that you will be taking up alot of space within the users accounts. Be careful not to put people over their limit. :)

I thought the same, but when I tried, I noticed that it overwrites the existing file.

So, there is no fear to lose a lot of space.

Thanks for that notice
