Hello I am new to oracle and new to linux.

I have problem making cron run my backup. I also have problem with the syntax on how to mail the output to my gmail account.
I need help please.

Here are the details:

Oracle# crontab -e
00 23 * * 2 /home/oracle/dbascripts/fullbackup.sh | mail -s "fullbackup" dbawork@gmail.com

my network time protocol shows military time but my system shows 12 hourly time.

I need help with the syntax and how to go about scheduling the cron

Thank you

Panam

Place line above in your crontab file & then repeatedly do following to watch timestamp change

ls -l /tmp/capture.env
