django-db-snapshot 1.0.b

Reusable Django app for fully automatic database snapshots

Django-Db-Snapshot
==================

What's that
-----------
Reusable Django app for fully automatic database snapshots.
We are using it for backup big databases (100GB+).
App can be run on several instances and managing from one place.


Installation
------------

1. Install backup server with LVM support. Install and configure ``mylvmbackup`` config file

.. code-block:: bash

$ apt-get install mylvmbackup
$ cp /etc/mylvmbackup.conf{,.bak}
$ cat > /etc/mylvmbackup.conf << END
[mysql]
user=root
password=123password123

socket=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

[lvm]
vgname=vg0
lvname=mysql
lvsize=2G
END

2. Install ``dbsnapshot`` using pip:

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install django-db-snapshot

3. Add the ``dbsnapshot`` application to ``INSTALLED_APPS``
4. Configure django-celery on project settings

.. code-block:: bash

$ apt-get install redis-server
$ pip install django-celery

.. code-block:: python

INSTALLED_APPS += ('djcelery',)

BROKER_URL = 'redis://127.0.0.1:6379/1'
CELERYBEAT_SCHEDULER = 'djcelery.schedulers.DatabaseScheduler'

import djcelery
djcelery.setup_loader()


5. Sync database (``./manage.py syncdb`` or ``./manage.py migrate``)
6. Run internal dbsnapshot server (``./manage.py run_dbsnapshot_server``)
7. Restart Redis instance

.. code-block:: bash

$ /etc/init.d/redis-server restart

8. Add backup server and configure backup options on django admin interface (``/admin/dbsnapshot/server/``)
9. That's all. Enjoy.
