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