vakap

vakap is a site manager, originally intended to automate backups of sites hosted by OMBU. However, it's architecture allows any operation on sites, such as executing maintenance scripts, rotating logs etc.

This is currently a work in progress so if you use it, do so at your own risk. If you find it useful, I'd love to hear your feedback.

What it does

  • Allows running a command on a list of sites, such as backing them up.
  • Stores backups in Amazon S3.
  • Encrypts files client-side with gnupg before sending to S3.

Commands

Implemented

  • list: Lists managed sites
  • backup: Backs-up sites
  • status: Report on a site, such as when it was last backed-up

Planned

There's a milestone in the bugtracker for Planned & Proposed Components

Components

All commands require the following arguments:

  • host_string: The fabric host string where the database lives.

MysqlComponent

Backup a MySQL database. Arguments:

  • db_name: The database name.
  • db_user: The database user name. This user must have sufficient privilege in the host to run mysqldump on this database without requiring a password.

Same options as MysqlComponent.

TgzComponent

Tar & gzip a directory (follows symlinks). Arguments:

  • db_name: The database name

DuplicityComponent

Same options as TgzComponent.

Dependencies

Setup

  • Provide a settings file (vakap will look for settings.json). See settings.sample.json for an exmaple .
