Hi All,

 

 

I have the following Applescript that takes all the files in " /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backup/Daily"

 

Zips, renames the Zip file and drops the file in the " /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backup/Daily/Daily Zipped directory, then it deletes

 

the original filess in " /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backup/Daily"

 

 

property backupFolder : "/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backup/"

 

set dailyFolder to backupFolder & "Daily"

set dailyZippedFolder to backupFolder & "Daily Zipped/"

set timeStamp to do shell script "/bin/date +FM_Daily_Backup_%Y_%m_%d"

set ZIPfile to quoted form of (dailyZippedFolder & timeStamp & ".zip")

 

do shell script "/usr/bin/zip -jr " & ZIPfile & space & quoted form of dailyFolder

do shell script "/bin/rm -rf " & quoted form of dailyFolder & "/*"

 

 

How do I turn this applescript into a FMS13 serverside script to be run on a FMS schedule?

 

 

Thanks,

 

John
