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.

FEATURES

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

QUICK SETUP

  1. Get the source

  2. Edit the config.mk

  3. Run make and make install

  4. Run pitrery configure -o pitrery -f [[user@]host:]/path/to/backups (user@host being optional)

  5. Configure WAL archiving (archive_command = 'archive_wal %p') in PostgreSQL

  6. Run pitrery to perform your backups and restores
