I need to schedule a backup (at a certain time) and set an automatic export to a remote server (without using a pw) with scp command. How could I do that?

Thanks in advance.

  • Split the problem into three parts. 1 how to take a backup, 2 how to schedule this at a particular time, 3 how to get the result onto a remote system. Which parts have you tried, and where did you get stuck? Commented Apr 4, 2021 at 19:25

The best way is to setup an SSH key pair and use that to automate the authentication process.
