Fullsitebackup

From MediaWiki.org
Jump to: navigation, search

While looking for a quick and reliable way to get complete working backups, I stumbled over these shell scripts. They were originally designed for Drupal, but can easily be adapted for use with MediaWiki.

Fullsitebackup creates a complete backup of the files of a MediaWiki installation and of its database. Fullsiterestore restores both. Also, the scripts can be used to migrate a MediaWiki installation from one to another host.

Please note that these scripts have some limitations, have some security risks, and are not tested thoroughly.

To do: Testing; handling of charsets; handling of innodb tables and lots more.

#!/bin/bash
#
# fullsitebackup.sh V1.2
#
# Full backup of website files and database content.
#
# A number of variables defining file location and database connection
# information must be set before this script will run.
# Files are tar'ed from the root directory of the website. All files are
# saved. The MySQL database tables are dumped without a database name and
# and with the option to drop and recreate the tables.
#
# ----------------------
# 05-Jul-2007 - Quick adaptation for MediaWiki (currently testing)
# ----------------------
# March 2007 Updates - Version for Drupal
# - Updated script to resolve minor path bug
# - Added mysql password variable (caution - this script file is now a security risk - protect it)
# - Generates temp log file
# - Updated backup and restore scripts have been tested on Ubunutu Edgy server w/Drupal 5.1
