syntax error: unexpected end of file


Hi have a little code file to run a backup:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
today="$(date +%a-%d-%B-%Y)"
month="$(date +%b-%Y)"
file="/mnt/backupdir/backupdir/$month/"


if [ -d $file ]; then
     echo "folder OK"
else
	echo "foer lage folder"
        mkdir $file
	echo "laget folder"
fi

echo "over mysql dump"
mysqldump -u root -p5******** database > /mnt/backupdir/backupdir/$month/$today.database-backup.sql


cd /srv/www/appfolder/
tar czf /mnt/backupdir/backupdir/$month/$today.attachments-backup.tar.gz attachments

This have worked on the old server but now I get:
Quote:
sh /home/scrips/backupscript2
: command not foundscript2: line 5:
: command not foundscript2: line 6:
/home/scrips/backupscript2: line 21: syntax error: unexpected end of file
Have tried to search for a solution, but found no match that helped me.

regards and thanks for help!!!

There is no syntax error. Maybe have you edited the file in windows? If this is the case it can be a problem with carriage returns which are not interpreted correctly by the shell. You can easily verify that using:
Code:
$ head -1 backupscript2 | od -c
0000000   #   !   /   b   i   n   /   b   a   s   h  \r  \n
0000014
The extra carriage returns can be removed using:
Code:
$ dos2unix backupscript2
