comment Problems creating nested directories in VSFTP on CENTOS7
For security reasons, I'd strongly suggest using SCP or SFTP over FTP especially if you are handling data that is belongs to your clients.

It would have been really nice if you had indicated that this was in a VirtualBox type of environment from the start. Everybody could have convirged on the appropriate solution faster.

comment crontab error with (No MTA installed) but I use >/dev/null 2>&1
It sets the descriptor to a designated default until changed by an underlying command. This format would be good so that in the future if other commands and such are added to the line, you will not have to worry about this particular problem again.

You still need to handle the STDERR on the mysqldump seperately as the pipe will only handle STDOUT.
