I know how to config the crontab, but I am not sure what the syntax of the script should be. I have one to dump my DB and also to move it to a backup server.
To dump, I use something like:
mysqldump -u User -pPassword --opt DB_Name| gzip > /path/to/save/backup/BACKUPSQL.$(date +%a).gz
That creates the BACKUPSQL file with the current day of the week.
Now I can\'t use mysqldump to optimize the DB, so would it be something like this?
mysql -u User -pPassword OPTIMIZE TABLE `c_ban_users` , `c_messages` , `c_reg_users` , `c_users`
I just used phpmychat as an example DB.
Where do I tell it which DB to optimize?
Also can I use a wildcard such as * to mean all tables, or do I need to list them?
