PostgreSQL Backup Image (the manual way)¶
Use the Crunchy Data PostgreSQL Backup Container to easily backup your PostgreSQL Databases inside an APPUiO project:
git clone https://github.com/CrunchyData/crunchy-containers.git cd examples/openshift/backup-job/
The backup job requires a persistent volume type such as NFS be mounted by the backup container. APPUiO provides the Persistent Volume (PV), so the first step to use the backup container is to create a Persistent Volume Claim (PVC).
oc create -f backup-job-pvc.json
First we need a admin user on the PostgreSQL database to be able to do a WAL backup. Therefore you should edit the deployment config of the database container and add the following env variable:
name: POSTGRESQL_ADMIN_PASSWORD value: yourPassword
Create the backup job and container:
oc process -f backup-job-nfs.json \ -v CCP_IMAGE_TAG="1.2.1"\ DATABASE_HOST="postgres",DATABASE_USER="postgres",\ DATABASE_PASS="yourPassword",DATABASE_PORT=5432 \ | oc create -f -
Note, that the BACKUP_PASS value has to be the same password as configured in the postgres deployment description.
