Backup tool that enhances the trac-admin hotcopy utility
Script that provides some additional tooling around TracAdmin's hotcopy function. The script supports archiving the backup in gzip, bzip2, or zip format and can be configured to retain a specified number of past backups. Ideal for use as a cron job.
The script is derived from the 'hot-backup.py' script included in the Subversion distribution which provides similar tooling around Subversion's hotcopy utility.
USAGE: trac-hot-backup.py [OPTIONS] PROJECT_PATH BACKUP_PATH Create a backup of the project at PROJECT_PATH in a subdirectory of the BACKUP_PATH location, named with the backup date and time. Options: --archive-type=FMT Create an archive of the backup. FMT can be one of: bz2 : Creates a bzip2 compressed tar file. gz : Creates a gzip compressed tar file. zip : Creates a compressed zip file. --num-backups=N Number of prior backups to keep around (0 to keep all). --help -h Print this help message and exit.
