Smile Backing up and compressing the database

Hi, I'm actually using this command for backingup my database


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

But I is a little big for download, so, how can I make a gzip (is that right?)?

Is better to do the gzip after or at the same time I make the backup?

Thank you!

There is no real best choice. I would prefer if it is done at the same time.

Real name: Atakan
tar cvzf file.tar.gz file_name => Compressses file

tar -zxpf file.tar.gz => Uncompresses tar.gz files

tar -xpf file.tar.gz => Uncompresses .tar files

gunzip file => Uncompresses .gz files

I don't now how to compress with gzip format. But you can use tar.gz instead of it.
