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?
