Hello everyone,

i'm new of the forum… hope to find help here 🙂

I'm using joomla 3.6 to backup more the one db on my server with a cronjob. I would like to backup ONLY the databases and put all the db.sql files in one directory. Last, just to knoew, i use cpanel cronjob.

I try to set this the Cron tab in the administration pannel but i got one file .tar with all the files, documents but not the db file 🙁


Some one can help me? please…

The mysql backup is inside your tar archive, file administrator/backups/database-sql.sql
