The following command on crontab does not work at all.
0 12 * * * mysqldump -hserverhpost -uuser -ppass db > /path/to/backu/$(date +%d-%m-%Y)
I read extensively about this and i cannot see what is wrong with it.
I doesn't seen to work at all.
If i run the mysqldump command alone on the shell, it works fine, but when i send to crontab it doesn't.
Am i missing something?
I want it to run everyday at noon.
The problem is: The dump file is not created. the command alone is supposed to store the mysqldump on a file on a folder. which works fine when i run it on the shell, but it doesn't create the file on crontab.
