$ chmod +x ~/script_backups/backup-db.sh

Edit add script bash:

$ vim ~/script_backups/backup-db.sh
#!/bin/bash

# Add your backup dir location
DATE=$(date +%d-%m-%Y)
BACKUP_DIR="/home/user/dump"

# Dump each database
mongodump -d dbname -o $BACKUP_DIR/dbname-$DATE

# Compress output dir backup
cd $BACKUP_DIR
tar -cf - dbname-$DATE | xz -9 -c - > dbname-$DATE.tar.xz

# Delete output dir backup
rm -rf $BACKUP_DIR/dbname-$DATE

# Send backup to another server
rsync -azvvPr dbname-$DATE.tar.xz backup@10.10.10.10:~/backup-db

# Delete files older than 3 days
