GoBackup is built in a daemon mode, use
gobackup start to start as a service in the background.
You can configure the
schedule for each model, it will run backup task at the time you set.
models: my_backup: schedule: # At 04:05 on Sunday. cron: "5 4 * * sun" storages: local: type: local path: /path/to/backups databases: mysql: type: mysql host: localhost port: 3306 database: my_database username: root password: password other_backup: # At 04:05 on every day. schedule: every: "1day" at: "04:05" storages: local: type: local path: /path/to/backups databases: mysql: type: mysql host: localhost port: 3306 database: my_database username: root password: password
And then start daemon:
Now, there has a service named
gobackup running in background.
$ ps aux | grep gobackup jason 20443 0.0 0.1 409232800 8912 ?? Ss 7:47PM 0:00.02 gobackup run
NOTE: If you wants start without daemon, use gobackup run instead.
GoBackup will handle the following signals:
HUP- Hot reload the configuration.
QUIT- Graceful shutdown.
# Reload configuration $ kill -HUP 20443 # Exit daemon $ kill -QUIT 20443
Alternative to use crontab to run backup
You may want run backup in scheduled, you need Crontab (opens in a new tab):
Append this line and save it:
0 0 * * * /usr/local/bin/gobackup perform >> ~/.gobackup/gobackup.log
0 0 * * *means run at 0:00 AM, every day.
And after a day, you can check the execute status by ~/.gobackup/gobackup.log.
