Fwd: Cron <root@hXXXXXX> tar cfCz /root/backups/htdocs-`date +



Hello,

could someone please advise me, why would
my tar-command work fine on the command line:

hXXXXXX:afarber {272} sudo tar cfCz /root/backups/htdocs-`date
+%F`.tgz /var/www/htdocs .
hXXXXXX:afarber {273} sudo ls -l /root/backups
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1087070 Oct  6 14:43 htdocs-2006-10-06.tgz

But fails in the root's crontab:

h754814:afarber {274} sudo crontab -l
3       3       *       *       *       tar cfCz
/root/backups/htdocs-`date +%F`.tgz /var/www/htdocs .

Thank you
Alex
