Path to script is: /home/username/automysqlbackup.sh

Thanks in advance

This will run the job every night at midnight.

Here's what that job would look like in cpanel:

cPanel cron configuration

On my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server, automysqlbackup.sh included a cronjob. This is what it looks like. It's very simple.

$ cat /etc/cron.daily/automysqlbackup
#!/bin/sh
test -x /usr/sbin/automysqlbackup && /usr/sbin/automysqlbackup

So, automysqlbackup runs as part of the Daily cronjobs. The schedule for the daily cronjobs can be seen in /etc/crontab.
