django-backup

http://github.com/andybak/django-backup

Backup, compress and restore database and media files. Transfer them via email or FTP and maintain a set number of dated versions on remote FTP server.

Requirements

My fork of Pysftp: https://github.com/andybak/Pysftp (a nice friendly wrapper around Paramiko: https://github.com/robey/paramiko)

Authors

New Features in this fork

  • Facility to backup media directories in addition to backing up SQL dump
  • Transfer backups to remote FTP site
  • cleanmedia and cleandb options allow you to only retain a set number of backups on the remote ftp site. Can specify via settings different values for days, weeks and years to retain (see below)
  • 'manage.py restore' pulls down the latest backup from FTP and feeds it to mysql
  • option to delete alllocal backups
  • if using FTP you can opt not to retain local copy of backups
  • Unfortunately Postgres support hasn't been kept up to date in this version. It shouldn't be that hard to replace.
