The recommended backup strategy for a production sit is to use
an automated script which first backs up the database to a file in
and then backs up all of
to a single zip file, and then copies that zip file to another
Make sure that the manual backup process described above works.
Customize the default backup script. Edit
/var/lib/aolserver/$OPENACS_SERVICE_NAME/etc/backup.shwith your specific parameters.
Make sure the file is executable:
chmod +x backup.sh
Set this file to run automatically by adding a line to root's crontab. (Typically, with
export EDITOR=emacs; crontab -e.) This example runs the backup script at 1:30 am every day.
