    Hello I am taking Linux + course and need some help. I need to write a shell script for daily email to the administrator if the backup fails or errors out. I do not know where to start and was hoping for someone to help with me with where I can get some helpful information. Websites, books, articles,etc..

    I would really appreciate it. I hope I put this under the right thread.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help. Please keep it on the public boards.

    I am not asking for the answer. I am just asking for where I can find some valuable information.

    Thanks

    no I am not too familiar with shell scripting. It doesn't matter which backup utility i use. Yes, I am aware of back utilities that I read in my chapter reading.
