Easy Website Backup With Crontab

Backing up your website is a good practise you should definitely adopt, your host may offer a backup of your website but I’d also recommend taking your own backups just in case your hosting providers should ever fail, plus it shouldn’t take you much of your time to configure.

You’re going to need to know your websites path, traditionally it should be located somewhere in /var/www/your-website-domain. You’re also going to need to know your username and password for the database you’re going to be backing up on your database server.
