Database backupΒΆ

We periodically create a databse dump and offer users to download it. At the same time, it can be used as a database backup if something wrong happens. Please see /etc/cron.d/cron-backup-database-coprdb.

To backup the database manually (this can be useful e.g. before upgrading to a new major version of PostgreSQL), run:

[root@copr-fe ~][PROD]# su - postgres
bash-5.0$ /usr/local/bin/backup-database coprdb

Please be aware that the script does sleep for some undeterministic amount of time. You might want to kill the sleep process to speed it up a little.
