used for setting variables

means the script is in the current directory (this might not be the case)

a combination of both

Sounds like the script is not located where you think it is - i.e. the 
same directory as you are running "backup1.sh" from...

Just a stab in the dark anyway.  It sounds like I'm stating the obvious, 
so if there is nothing new in my answer, I'll leave it to the rest of 
PLUG to tackle.

I'm still fairly new to bash scripting and must admit, I haven't tried a 
script from within a script yet...
