backwork-backup-mysql Build Status PyPI version

Add support for MySQL backups on backwork.

Requirements

This plug-in is build on top of mysqldump, so you will need to it installed.

mysqldump is part of the mysql client.cd .

Installing

You can use pip to install this plug-in:

$ pip install backwork-backup-mysql

Using

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

backwork backup mysql

$ backwork backup mysql -h
usage: backwork backup mysql [-h] [--gzip] [-o OUTPUT]

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

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --gzip                compress output file  (requires gzip to be installed)
  -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT
                        output file path

You can pass any option that you would normally use on mysqldump:

$ backwork backup mysql --host 192.168.99.1 -u root -ppassword --port 32769 --all-databases

As shown in the --help message, there are two extra arguments you can use in your backup process --gzip and -o.

--gzip will compress the output and requires the gzip command to be available in your system.

-o OUTPUT or --output OUTPUT will save the output of mysqldump into a file.

backwork restore mysql

usage: backwork restore mysql [-h] [--gzip] [-i INPUT]

Restore MySQL databases. It uses `mysql` so it's required to have it
installed and added to the system's PATH.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --gzip                decompress backup file before restoring (requires gzip to be installed)

You can pass any option that you would normally use to connect to your mysql instance:

$ backwork restore mysql --host 192.168.99.1 -u root -ppassword --port 32769 --gzip --input=="mybackup.archive.gz"

Important: There is a conflict with the -h argument since it is reserved for the help/usage message. User --host to pass the hostname.
