Backup Admin


  • Rails app - Web interface to configure backups
  • Delayed Job queue - Backup jobs are performed asynchronously from a queue. At least one queue process will need to be run (rake jobs:work)
  • Cron - A schedule.rb file is provided to define tasks that need to run periodically. Use the whenever gem to export this to a cron file on a server when you deploy. See


Backup admin can be configured for your environment through environment variables. The following are required:

  • AWS_ACCESS_KEY: Amazon account
  • AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY: Amazon secret key
  • SECRET_TOKEN: A random string used by Rails to secure sessions (generate with rake secret)

Optional integrations may also be enabled by providing configuration for each service.


Enabled when NEWRELIC_KEY is set.


Enabled when AIRBRAKE_KEY is set. It his highly recommended that this is enabled as Backup Admin will report execution failures via Airbrake.
