NAME

narada-backup - prepare consistent project backup

VERSION

This document describes narada-backup version v2.3.8

USAGE

    narada-backup

DESCRIPTION

Should be executed in project deploy directory (or Narada 1.x project root directory).

At first run prepare full project backup in .backup/full.tar. NOTE: Incremental backups was disabled in version 2.3. On next runs prepare incremental backup in .backup/incr.tar plus append it to full backup in .backup/full.tar (using tar -A).

Because of used technique of quick full backup update, full backup will grow on each run. To keep file with full backup on reasonable size, you should force full backup from time to time.

To force full backup you should remove .backup/full.tar before running narada-backup.

Both full and incremental backups should be unpacked as incremental tar archives, see http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/tar/Incremental-Dumps.html.

Before preparing backup will run narada-mysqldump.

Files and directories listed in config/backup/exclude (use syntax suitable for tar's --exclude option) will not be included in backup.

Will exit with non-zero exit status if backup process failed.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

    config/backup/exclude
    .backup/*

COMPATIBILITY

Narada 1.x project use var/backup/ instead of .backup/.
