I set up a cron job on my server running RedHat 4.1 to backup MySQL databases, and then upload to Amazon S3. The goal is to drop the .bz2 file in a folder corresponding with the day of the week. However, I'm getting the following error mailed to me by daemon.
MAILTOfirstname.lastname@example.org 0 4 * * * mysqldump --all-databases -ubackups -pPassword | gzip > all-databases.sql.bz2; s3cmd put all-databases.sql.bz2 s3://backup_exampleserver.com/mysql_backups/`date +%A`/all-databases.sql.bz2
