pfsense 2.3+ backup

Requirements

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fkrull/deadsnakes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python2.7
  • python mechanize
sudo apt-get install python-pip
pip install mechanize

or

sudo apt-get install python-mechanize

I had a perl script to do this on 2.2, but since the update it hasn't worked. So I decided to start over with a language I'm not as familiar with.

I'm not a python guy at all so please excuse any less than ideal code in here. That said, it works fine.

You'll want to automate this with a cron job. I just symlink it into /etc/cron.daily/

ln -sv /path/to/backup-pfsense.py /etc/cron.daily
