= Awesome Backups This Rails plugin provides Rake and Capistrano tasks for making database backups. == Rake You can create new backups, specifying which tables to skip. This will create a +backups+ directory in your app root, and will create a directory with the current timestamp that has a copy of the current schema and fixtures with data for each of your current tables. $ rake db:backup:create SKIP_TABLES=sessions,audits You can restore your database to either the latest version, or a specific version. $ rake db:backup:restore VERSION=20080908120356 == Capistrano With Capistrano, you can create and download backups from your server using capistrano: $ cap backup:create $ cap backup:download Or, if you want to create a new backup of the server and mirror it to the local database: $ cap backup:mirror You can automagically create backups any time `cap deploy:migrations` is run. Just add a callback in config/deploy.rb: before 'deploy:migrate', 'backup:create' == ToDo * Database-specific backup strategies: it would be nice to have the option of using different stragegies for different databases. For example, use `mysqldump` for MySQL databases, or simply copy the database file for SQLite.
