Dated backups
« on: April 30, 2009, 02:02:25 am »
I tend to make a daily backup of my installation and download it to my computer. The backup's name is always opengoo_backup.zip.

Since I store them all in my default download directory, they get renamed to opengoo_backup(02).zip or whatever.

It would be nice that the backups created had the date they were created in the filename for immediate recognition. Something like: opengoo_backup_20090430.zip or similar.

Scheduling the backup using cron and shooting the file off to another server via scp or rsync wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Good idea! Done for next release.

About the cron backup, we added it to beta 2 release. Please check if it works for you.

Thanks.

I'm running 1.4.1 and it doesn't seem to be working.

Never ran beta, so I don't know if it worked then :S
