Automating via Cron Jobs


Just got all my backup scripts working through the terminal now automated a few rsync file transfers, some MySQL select scripts to output files and percona backup and prepare.

They all run fine through the terminal logged on as root.

Do i need to add anything special to allow these to run via the crontab?

I’m going to automate the full chain of what i need to do for the backups this way. Most of the file moves / scripts are done just witing for the Percona backups to be planned in and everything should be finally done.
