How to back up with cron


How to create a cron file that will regularly perform the following backups:
a. Performs a level 0 backup once per month
b.Performs a level 2 dump one day per week
c.Performs a level 5 dump every day that neither a level 0 nor a level 2 dump is performed. Inthe worst case, how many restores would you have to perform to recover a file that was dumped using this schedule.

That sounds like a homework question - which you shouldn't be asking us to do for you. Can you tell us what you've done so far and what results you got?

Maybe try the man-pages?

man crond
man crontab
