You can configure a Cron Job to call Enupal Backup and automatically create a backup each night, rather than doing a manual Backup every time.

Before you begin,

  • We recommend running your backups at a time of day or night when usage is low.
  • Please make sure you have enough disk space on your server before proceeding.
  • Could be a good idea take a look at the general settings and setup a proper amount of backups to keep locally.

Enupal Backup will enable a Webhook URL in order to be called from the Cron Job, follow the next steps to enable this feature:

  1. Click on "Settings"
  2. Click on "Schedule"
  3. Enable Webhook
  4. Add a "Secret Key" you could automatically generate one on clicking the "Generate" link
  5. Save the Settings
  6. Copy the Cron Example 
  7. Add the line copied to your crontab.
