    Hi

    How can i adjust this:
    Code:
    cd /home/nginx/domains/mydomain.com/
    tar -zcf /home/backup/backup_files_$(date +\%d-\%m-\%Y).tgz public 
    to auto create a folder inside /home/backup/07072014 every time that runs the script so the backup will go there and have a better view of backups?

    Thanks

    just change your tar line for /home/backup/ to add the data stamped folder... but wouldn't that end up a mess ? once that month is over ? /home/backup/07072014/ would have included august, september and so on files

    eaiser to leave as is
