backup of directories and subdirectories

Hello
I'm new to the area Bash scripting
and that is why I have a search script that is run on my unix server
and always when I start the server
or every 24 hours
The script will create backups of directories and subdirectories

I never found what I'm here make a new thread
I hope for a quick response and good

do you have basic knowledge of unix/linux commands? you have to do three things:

1. learn how to use the "copy (cp)" and maybe the "move (mv)" command
2. write the steps you do manualy in a file (the script)
3. make a "cron" entry and a "runlevel" start script (depending on your distribution)

google the commands in " " and learn how to use them.
