I have a folder in my server which contains some files. These are automated that means everyday we get new files automatically which will overwrite the old ones. So want to take a back up for this data. How can i copy all these files in to a another folder by renaming the files with current date while copying.
ex : i have a folder named folder1 which contains 4 files. path for this folder is home/install/project1/folder1
aaa.dat bbb.dat ccc.dat ddd.dat
now i want to copy all these four files in to a different folder named folder2. path for this folder is home/install/project1/folder2. while copying these files i want to rename each file and add the current date to the file. so my file names in folder2 should be..
aaa091012.dat bbb091012.dat ccc091012.dat ddd091012.dat
I want to write a
Linux shell script for this. Please give me some idea or some sample scripts related to this.
