- pack and sign backups of GNUmed databases
script compresses and signs GNUmed database
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.
The following line could be added to a system's /etc/anacrontab to make sure it
creates daily database backups for GNUmed:
1 15 gnumed-<your-company>-sign-backups /usr/bin/gm-zip+sign_backups.sh
Add the following line to a crontab file to sign database backups at 12:47 and
19:47 every day:
47 12,19 * * * * /usr/bin/gm-zip+sign_backups.sh
It is useful to have a PROCMAIL rule for the digital notary server replies
piping them into the stoarage area where the backups are kept.
