This TYPO3 recipie will backup your entire TYPO3 application, into a compressed database dump and optionally he file backup of the project assets.
Once complete we will notify via one of our notification channels.
Using SnapShooters Simples Backups Engine we use the typocms database extract command,
so no need to give SnapShooter your MySQL password, we can pipe config directly into mysqldump, no longer suffer from backups failing due to password rotation.
Supports custom flags to ignore tables with the default statement provided during setup
What is included
Using the type
typo3cms database:export command we extract your database. This means we don't require your database details on file,
we compress this output at the level of compression you wish before streaming to your storage provider of choice.
If you need to recover the database you can one click restore, get restore instructions or download the database for working on it locally.
By default we run the following flags to exclude database you don't want to include.
-e 'cf_*' -e 'cache_*' -e '[bf]e_sessions' -e sys_log
We also backup the file system, you can opt out of this if not required
We exclude the following:
The tmp directories are files that can be re-generated automatilly if missing. The source code for TYPO3 is not needed. If required for a restoration you can always download directly from TYPO3.
Time plan and retention time
SnapShooter makes it extreally easy to pick a backup frequency, typically you can pick from daily to every 5 minutes. (If you need more advanced you can use CRON scheduling)
You can then setup rotation polices.
Here is an typical backup strategy that SnapShooter customers use.
- keep one daily backup for each of the last 7 days
- keep one weekly backup for each of the last 4 weeks
- keep one monthly backup for each of the last 12 months
