What would you like to do?
Simple WordPress Backups v2
NOW=$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S)
# Backup database
wp db export ../backups/$SQL_FILE --add-drop-table
# Compress the database file
gzip ../backups/$SQL_FILE
# Backup uploads directory
tar -zcf ../backups/${NOW}_uploads.tar.gz wp-content/uploads
# Remove backup files that are a month old
# If running on OS X, the date command is a bit different:
# rm -f ../backups/$(date -v-1m +%Y%m%d*).gz
rm -f ../backups/$(date +%Y%m%d* --date='1 month ago').gz
