backwork-backup-mongo Build Status PyPI version

Adds support for MongoDB backups to backwork.

Requirements

This plug-in is build on top of mongodump, so you will need to have mongo-tools installed.

If you already have the mongod server or mongo client installed then you should have mongodump. If not, you can install them using the official packages or build from source.

Installing

You can use pip to install this plug-in:

$ pip install backwork-backup-mongo

Using

After installing the plug-in you will be able to use the backup mongo and restore mongo commands on backwork.

backwork backup mongo

$ backwork backup mongo --help
usage: backwork backup mongo [-h]

Backup a MongoDB database. It uses `mongodump` so it's required to have it
installed and added to the system's PATH. You can use any of the arguments
supported by `mongodump`. Use `mongodump --help` for more information.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit

You can pass any option that you would normally use on mongodump, e.g.:

$ backwork backup mongo --user=user --password=pass --host=mongo

The only exception is -h which is reserved for the help/usage message, so the host needs to be passed as --host.

backwork restore mongo

$ backwork restore mongo --help
usage: backwork restore mongo [-h]

Restore a MongoDB database. It uses `mongorestore` so it's required to have it
installed and added to the system's PATH. You can use any of the arguments
supported by `mongorestore`. Use `mongorestore --help` for more information.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit

You can pass any option that you would normally use on mongorestore, e.g.:

$ backwork restore mongo --user=user --password=pass --host=mongo dumps

The only exception is -h which is reserved for the help/usage message, so the host needs to be passed as --host.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
