I have a cron job set, if i manually do "run-parts" /etc/cron.hourly" it works and creates the mysql backups i want. if i wait for it to happen on its own it never actually runs.
There is nothing in the log stating an error, the cron job is:
0,15,30,45 * * * * /usr/bin/mysqldump -u root -ppassword databse > dbname.`/bin/date +\%Y\%m\%d`
i have it set every 15 just for testing, once working its a daily job. I installed it by running crontab -e and entering it.
Im on the latest redhat
