Backupper is a tool to backup all your databases spread all over the world!
$ gem install backupper
$ backupper path/to/config.yml [options]
A common YAML config file for backupper looks like this:
mailer: from: [email protected] # Gmail account used to send report email to: [email protected] # Send report email to this address password: Pa$$w0rD # Gmail account password db1: disabled: false # true to disable this backup dump: '/home/backup/db1' # path where to save the dump of the database extra_copy: '/mnt/backup-disk/backups/db1' # path where to save a extra copy of the dump username: user # server ssh username host: '184.108.40.206' # server ssh ip port: 22 # server ssh port password: Pa$$w0rD # server ssh password adapter: mysql # database to backup (supported are mysql or postgresql) database: db_name # database name db_username: db_user # database username db_password: db_Pa$$w0rD # database password dump_options: '--single-transaction --quick' # dump command extra options db2: disabled: false dump: '/home/backup/db2' extra_copy: '/mnt/backup-disk/backups/db2' username: user host: '220.127.116.11' port: 22 password: Pa$$w0rD adapter: postgresql database: db_name db_username: db_user db_password: db_Pa$$w0rD
After done all backups a report email is sent to you using gmail smtp service (remember to permit less secure app here).
⚠️ WARNING: the backupper configuration file contains many important passwords, so be careful to lock it and protect it with care!
To backup only specific databases you can pass the option
-o db1,db3. In this way only databases under the key
db3 will be backupped,
ignoring the others configuration keys.
