    I want to archive (zip / tar) all the files and directories in /home/www/ and have them put into a file 09-01-2006.tar that is put in /backups/

    I've read the man pages, but just can't figure it out. Can someone show me what the command would be to do this?

    Thanks.

    tar -cvzf /backups/09-01-2006.tar.gz /var/www/

    Is there a command that will backup all of my mysql databases and tar them?
