1) Goal of the project:
We need a script that automatically makes a backup of our complete server. In detail means that:
1.1) We set up an automatic job on a local PC (you deliver the file that needs to be executed)
1.2) By that automatic job the files on the server are compressed and downloaded automatically to the local PC
1.3) The compressed file on the server is deleted automatically after download
1.4) Names of compressed files are adjusted automatically in order to differentiate them from another (including date and time)
2.1) We already have a script in place but that does not work properly - see attached file and [url removed, login to view] .
2.2)The error that occurs is that the compressed files are empty.
2.3) We currently use winscp for connecting to the server
2.4) You would need to set up the script without having access to our server.
2.5) If you would like to use another technology please go ahead and let us know.
2.6) Server runs under Linux, local PC under Windows
