    Hello Everyone,

    Question, I have only 2 directories that constantly change on my site, and I want only those to be backed up. I know the cron commands to make that directory into a zip file, but is there a command that will make cron email that tar.gz file to me? The directory is only about 10 megs and will always be that size, but I need a cheap daily solution to backing it up, and I think this will work fine if I can figure out the command.

    Thanks for any help you can give.
