Easy use backup gem with Rails.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'backup_rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install backup_rails


  • Add Rails generator for simple backup scripts.


For now just add the gem to your Gemfile. Move the files in /examples dir into your project. Run whenever to setup your cron job. Make sure you've set the RAILS_ENV correctly.

whenever --update-crontab
crontab -l # Check if everything got updated correctly

When cron jobs are not run make sure you:

sudo touch /etc/cron.deny
