Confluence backup schedule - specific day of the week

In Confluence 4.0 is there a way to schedule the confluence backup to run on a specific day of the week, say every Saturday at 2am? I can't seem to find a cron expression to let me do that.

Sorry, try: 0 0 2 ? * 6 * Which should be: 0 seconds 0 minutes 2 hours ? Ignore day of month * any month 6 Saturday * any year Full documentation and more examples on cron expressions can be found at http://www.quartz-scheduler.org/documentation/quartz-1.x/tutorials/crontrigger if that helps.

Thanks Andrew! That works, I only had to change the 6 to 7 because if I used 6 it was saying that was a Friday and not a Saturday. I'm assuming that's because the cron expression has Sunday as the 1st day of the week.

Hi Ray,

This expression should work for every Saturday at 2am:

0 0 2 * * 6 ?

Hope that helps,

Andrew.

Thanks for the expression but when I do that I get the following validation error:

"

- '?' can only be specfied for Day-of-Month or Day-of-Week."

This widget could not be displayed.

Same error for me
