Basically I have a bash script that fetches data from my server to perform a backup.
As it is now I have to start that script manually, enter the password, and then wait for it to finish.
I would like to set up a cronjob that handles the backup.
But I really don't know how to handle the password in a cronjob.
Also I can't use keys for this, because my provider does not provide the mechanisms I need to configure them.
I have SSH access to my home folder, but in my home folder I don't have write access except for the
http(s)docs directory. So I can't create the necessary
~/.ssh/ directory and its contents for login via keys.
