VICIdial Full backup and transfer to remote SFTP script.

It's a good practice to regularly back up your Vicidial data and transfer it to a remote host, such as an FTP server. To streamline this process, I have developed a script that automates the backup and transfer to the SFTP server. This script simplifies the backup and transfer process by executing the Vicidial backup script ( and securely transferring the resulting backup file to the designated remote server using the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). By scheduling this script to run as a cron job every Sunday at 2:00 AM, Vicidial administrators can ensure that their data is consistently backed up and stored offsite.
