su7.info backup script

This script is used daily to backup important data from my production servers.

It backups the following :

  • MySQL databases from multiple instances
  • ... basically any directory you need on your filesystem !

All the data is tar.gz'd (so it keeps permissions, symbolic links and stuff) and uploaded to one or several FTP servers and / or one or several Swift containers you can configure.

Configuration :

Copy the config.example.py to config.py and fill it with your settings.
This file has to remain located in the same directory than backup.py.

Usage :

python2 backup.py


The main repository for this is on my Git server. You can contact me by email if you have any question.
