gm-backup_database - complete backup of GNUmed database

GM-BACKUP_DATABASE(8) System Manager's Manual GM-BACKUP_DATABASE(8)

NAME

gm-backup_database - complete backup of GNUmed database
 

SYNOPSIS

gm-backup_database
 

DESCRIPTION

The gm-backup_database script creates a backup of the database schema, data, and roles which can be used to restore a GNUmed database from scratch.
 
It is a really good idea to use it in a daily cron/anacron job to ensure that GNUmed patient data are safe against data loss. The Debian GNU/Linux packaged version of the GNUmed server installs such a cron job by default.
