Automated Daily Offsite Backups

Post by JWPlatt » Sat Jan 28, 2012 6:22 am

Few think about backups until a site goes down for lack of them. I just want to give folks the assurance that we did think about backups and are performing them automatically via bash scripts and Rsync. It has worked flawlessly since day 1 (shortly after April 1, 2011).

I originally made this a ToDo during development of the open source CWE release project when things became important to protect. That ToDo, among others now locked, is here in the CWE Management forum: viewtopic.php?p=3845#p3845. Since then, and for a long while now, that job was completed.

The following domain resource databases are fully and automatically backed up nightly at 1:00 AM server local time and copied off-site to a different server.

Hesk - Our support/help desk ticketing system.
Mantis - Our simple solution to issue tracking.
phpBB - Our forums.
Squee - Our <???>.
Wiki - Our wikipedia.
Blogs - Our Wordpress blogs.

Foundry - 00:00 MT
Repositories - In addition to local Foundry backups, the MOSS, CWE, CWE-ou, MOULSCRIPT and MOULSCRIPT-ou repos are mirrored to Bitbucket at 03:00, 09:00, 15:00, and 21:00 MT.

What's not backed up:

Projects (e.g., websites on subdomains) are responsible for their own backups. disclaims all responsibility for projects hosted here except for what they maintain in the above shared domain resources.
Perfect speed is being there.
