Bug Description

This page features a shell script:

- https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/backup-shellscripts.html

...which starts with:

"#!/bin/sh"

...which goes to /bin/dash on Ubuntu, while later:

sudo bash backup.sh

...is used (and this should be chmod u+x first).

Something is wrong with this one. I came here to set this one to "fix released", but after the point release update to help.ubuntu.com last night this one is not there. We need to figure out what went wrong here.

Never mind. I do not know what I did (perhaps I did not refresh the page or something). It is O.K.

Oh, This is fixed only in the trunk version, which is currently 14.04. I copied the link in the description, which was for 12.04. 12.04 is not fixed.
