Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Oracle hotbackup scripts?

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
There's a small bug in my script above:

You should move the cd $put_in_dir line up to be before the if [ "$redirect_p" -ne 1 ] line, not where it is now. If the cd isn't before the cat -s '' > $log_file truncation of the old log file, the log file never gets truncated at all and it will just keep growing week after week.
