pitrery: Point-In-Time Recovery (PITR) tools for PostgreSQL
WARNING : PITRERY IS IN MAINTENANCE-ONLY MODE
After 10 years of development, pitrery's development status is now Long Term Support (LTS). New features will no longer be added to Pitrery. We will continue to develop bug fixes and security fixes if need be.
Pitrery supports PostgreSQL versions from 9 up to 14 but will not work on PostgreSQL 15 and following because the backup API has evolved.
LTS period will end as of december 2026.
pitrery is set of tools to ease the management of PITR backups and restores:
Management of WAL segments archiving with compression to a host reachable with SSH or on the local machine
Automation of the base backup procedure
Restore to a particular date
Management of backup retention
Get the source
pitrery configure -o pitrery -f [[user@]host:]/path/to/backups(user@host being optional)

archive_command = 'archive_wal %p') in PostgreSQL
