Are there any "recipes" for setting up a standard backup schedule using Akeeba Solo and cron?

For example:

1. Take daily backups

2. Delete daily backups older than one week

3. Take weekly backups

4. Delete weekly backups older than one month

Are there any easy recipes or howto walking through setting this up, step by step?

Akeeba Staff

you can achieve it by using different profiles: one for daily backups and one for the weekly ones.

You'll have to set the frequency of the CRON job while you setup them in your server (docs and video).
Then in order to delete the old backups, you have to setup a quota management (docs and video).

I hope this will help you, if you need more info feel free to ask!
