    A simple script for backing up a MongoDB and/or Mysql database to a Samba share. Uses the system's mongodump, mysqldump and smbclient binaries.

    For proper ways to handle backups of production systems please read the MongoDB and MySQL documentation.

    Configuration

    This script uses node-config for configuration. A full config may look like this:

    {
        "binaries": {
            // Path to the binaries to execute (use null for autodetection)
            "mongo": "/Users/peter/mongodb/mongodb-osx-x86_64-3.2.1/bin",
            "mongodump": "/Users/peter/mongodb/mongodb-osx-x86_64-3.2.1/bin",
            "mysqldump": null,
            "smbclient": null
        },
        "samba": {
            "service": "\\\\\\\\MyServer\\\\myshare",
            "workgroup": "acme.corp",
            "directory": "my_dir/foo",
            "username": "peter",
            "password": "gr1ff1n"
        },
        "mongo": {
            "username": null,
            "password": null,
            "host": "localhost",
            "port": 27017,
            "ignore": ["test", "prod_old"]
        },
        "mysql": {
            "username": "root",
            "password": null,
            "host": "localhost",
            "port": 3306
        }
    }

    Usage

    Run the script with --help to het a list of available options:

    Help output

    If you run into errors crank up the verbosity and check the actual command lines run by the script (--verbose --verbose --error-details).

    Caveats

    • Most config options are used verbatim when executing shell commands. Do not pass unsanitized user input to this script. You have been warned!
    • Careful: debugging output may contain passwords.
    • Intended use is for a single-instance MongoDB. Running the script against a cluster is probably not going to work.

    Gotchas

    • Remember to enable the --harmony-destructuring V8-flag.
    • SMB upload requires smbclient, so good luck using it on OS X.
    • The Samba service config option must use an obscene amount of backslashes, e.g. "\\\\\\\\MyServer\\\\share".
