    Edit your cronjobs which call the backup script and make them look like the following.

    For weekly backup at 06:05am on each Sunday:
    5 7 * * 0 /path/to/backup/script
    OR
    5 7 * * 7 /path/to/backup/script
    0 and 7 are considered as Sunday afaik :)

    For monthly backups (if you like them on the first Sunday of the month)
    5 5 1-7/1 * 0 /path/to/backup/script

    Note: I have not tried this out personally, but dont think it will fail you either. Do let me know whether it worked for you :)

    umm sorry but in my cron i have only

    0 1 * * * /scripts/cpbackup

    so i think that the weekly and monthly backup is schedule inside the script and not in the cron
