What I basically want to do in order to backup the website running on my webserver:

  • create a dump of the mysql database
  • copy / zip a certain folder containing the website in a directory
  • zip the directory with the backuped website and the dump
  • transfer it to another server or another HD or something like that

How can I automate this process to be executed every day at midnight?

These should have what you need.

All you should need after that is a good understanding of robocopy and scheduler syntax.
