The following article serves to provide details on how local backups are completed when using GridPane.
The location of the local backups are within the following folder
There are two subfolders.
- Databases – Database dumps.
- Snapshots – Borg snapshots.
The current method for backup up files is borg backup, you can read more about borg here https://borgbackup.readthedocs.io/en/stable/
There is a cronjob that is kicked off under the root user
You’ll see the command expands to the following.
I’m not too sure how the database backups are completed, I’m assuming mysqldump.
If you want to see a list of the snapshots available via borg, you can run the following command. You will however have to enter in the authentication key which is located in the file /root/gridpane.token
However, be careful as this is your GridPane API key.
