daily cron backup -- what all to backup?
I'm relatively new to administering servers, would appreciate some help. I also posted this to the issues on GitHub, sorry for cross posting.
I have NodeBB running on Openshift and would like to take daily backups to Amazon S3. I'm using the Nodejs and Redis cartridges.
Where is all the data stored? What is stored in Redis? What files / directories should I backup using the
cronservice available on Openshift?
Are there any examples / documentation?
Thanks in advance.
You need to backup your redis database since all the forum data is stored there. Also backup the public/uploads folder.
Wow! Thank you for the super-fast response. Will report on my adventures with the backup once I'm done.
