Here are some cron scripts that you can use:

Site Backup via Cron:

Code:
<?
$datestamp = date("Y-m-d_H-i-s");      // Current date to append to filename of backup file in format of YYYY-MM-DD

/* CONFIGURE THE FOLLOWING VARIABLES TO MATCH YOUR SETUP */
$filename= "Full_Account_Backup-$datestamp.tar";   // The name (and optionally path) of the dump file
$ftp_server = "123.123.123.123";      // Name or IP. Shouldn't have any trailing slashes and shouldn't be prefixed with ftp://
$ftp_port = "21";   // FTP port - blank defaults to port 21
$ftp_username = "anonymous";      // FTP account username
$ftp_password = "";      // FTP account password - blank for anonymous

$filename = "/home/YOURACCOUNT/" . $filename . ".gz";

$command = "tar cvf ~/$filename ~/*";
$result = exec($command);

$command = "gzip -9 -S .gz ~/$filename";
$result = exec($command);

// set up basic connection
$ftp_conn = ftp_connect($ftp_server);

// Turn PASV mode on or off

ftp_pasv($ftp_conn, false);

// login with username and password
$login_result = ftp_login($ftp_conn, $ftp_username, $ftp_password);

// check connection
if ((!$ftp_conn) || (!$login_result))
{
   echo "FTP connection has failed.";
   echo "Attempted to connect to $ftp_server for user $ftp_username";
   exit;
}
else
{
   echo "Connected to $ftp_server, for user $ftp_username";
}

// upload the file
$upload = ftp_put($ftp_conn, "foo.tar.gz", $filename, FTP_BINARY);

// check upload status
if (!$upload)
{
   echo "FTP upload has failed.";
}
else
{
   echo "Uploaded $filename to $ftp_server.";
}

// close the FTP stream
ftp_close($ftp_conn);

unlink($filename);   //delete the backup file from the server
?>
