Change to backup script - ":" to "_"


I would like to point You to little problem of use colon in backup script - “/var/ipfire/backup/bin/” - on line 22

NOW="$(date “+%Y-%m-%d-%H:%M”)"

  • when used with external programs to copy (manage) backup files - they will convert to “%3A” (WinSCP for Windows in My case) and this is not good looking therefore I would recomend usage of “_” character instead of “:”.

Do You agree ?
