Docker MySQL-Backup

A tool to automatically dump running MySQL databases in Docker containers.

Installation

Manual from GitHub

Clone the Docker MySQL-Backup repository:

git clone https://github.com/binfalse/docker-mysql-backup.git

Copy the backup script to the cron.daily (most likely /etc/cron.daily/) directory on your system:

cp docker-mysql-backup/etc/cron.daily/docker-mysql-backup /etc/cron.daily/docker-mysql-backup

Copy the configuration to /etc/default/:

cp docker-mysql-backup/etc/default/docker-mysql-backup /etc/default/docker-mysql-backup

Install from my Apt repository

If you're running a Debian-based system you may want to use my apt-repository to install the Docker MySQL-Backup tool. In that case you just need to run

aptitude install bf-docker-mysql-backup

Afterwards, look into /etc/default/docker-mysql-backup for configuration options. This way, you'll always stay up-to-date with bug fixes and new features :)

How does that work?

You'll find an article with detailed information on the Docker MySQL-Backup tool in my blog. I strongly recommend to read that article before deploying the tool.
