CentOS 6.2 cron.daily

http://serverfault.com – I created a new file "dbbackup" in /etc/cron.daily that contains a simple database backup script. #!/bin/sh mysqldump -h localhost -u user -p'passord' database_name > /var/www/sites/example.com/backups/db_backup_"`eval date +%u%m%Y`".sql Now the problem is that this file is not being automatically run, I am fairly new to linux servers but from reading around I found that this is the location that you need to create your cron scripts, but for some reason it doesn't run it, maybe I need to tell CRON some how to run this file in the terminal does anyone know? Thanks (HowTos)
