so for a course I'm currently studying I have a test to do soon. (It's a low level course) We are using RHEL6 and we've been given a sample test to work through. There's one single question I can't seem to work out, as I don't recall the teacher ever explaining anything like it. The exact question is this:
Perform an automatic backup of the /home directory using the tar command, at 02:00 a.m. every Saturday morning. Save this backup under a directory called /backup with the file name system_backup.tar.bz. Note that all backups are to be performed according to the organization standards which require us to view the time stamp on system_backup.tar.bz to ensure it is the latest file that was created.
I know how to make the directory for the backup, and I know how to archive things using tar, but I'm really not sure how to go about automating this process, as I haven't been taught how! I'm a little concerned, and everything I've found online has been fairly confusing. If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance.
