Backup Task

A simple rake task for backing up a Rails 3 application's database using the Backup gem.

Using

Add the gem to your Gemfile.

gem 'backup-task'

Create a backup configuration file in config/backup.rb, with a trigger called db_backup. See github.com/meskyanichi/backup/wiki/Getting-Started for details. Be sure to move the resulting file to config/backup.rb within your Rails app and to name your trigger 'db_backup'.

Once you've done a 'bundle install' you should be able to run the backup task

rake db:backup

This will back up your database according to the configuration in config/backup.rb. It will use the tmp, log, and db directories from your Rails app to avoid conflicting with any other backups happening on the same system.
