Need help in backing up of databases.

Hi Everyone,

I am new to DBA stuff. I wonder if anyone can help me. Task is that, I have 10 databases and need to take backups of all the databases using data pump in Unix/Linux, compress them using gzip and use cron to schedule the job twice a day.

Appreciate if anyone can help me in this. I was trying this for a week but no luck.

Further, you mentioned datapump, so I can assume you're talking about Oracle DB: in the future please detail the software you are referring to.
If you need help with Oracle datapump you may begin with having a look at:

see ya
