    Hello, I have been trying to get an automatic backup script working with cronjob but I just can't get it to work.
    I am using centos.

    I don't think it's the script itself cause nothing shows or happens.
    Here it is anyways:

    I noticed I can't do 'screen -r minecraft', even though I made the screen 'minecraft'
    this is what it shows for the screen, is it suppose to be like that?
        There is a screen on:
    There is no screen to be resumed matching minecraft.
    It shows when I do crontab -l
    20 1 * * * /root/server/ 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null
    Any help? :(

    You can't use a CRON tab by itself to perform a safe backup while the server is running. This would only work on cold files that are not being used by a server. Running this script can and will cause a corrupt backup.

    Does the script work when you run it manually?
