nodebb-backup

A simple backup script based on the steps described in https://docs.nodebb.org/vi/latest/upgrading/

Install

npm install -g nodebb-backup

Run (inside your nodebb folder)

nodebb-backup

Features

  • Backs up the mongo database specified in NodeBB's config.json file
  • Backs up the nodebb/uploads directory which contains uploaded images
  • Compresses dumped db and files from /uploads into a tar with a format like this: nodebb-backup-2015-09-01_1509-v0.7.3.tar
  • Resulting tar file is saved to the directory above nodebb

Limitations

  • Many, it's pretty raw!
  • Mongo only
  • No command line options yet

Needed Features (please send me feedback)

  • Be able to provide a path to place the resulting back up file
  • Redis support
  • Maybe be able to restore from a provided tar file?

Unpacking tar to new directory, 'unpackeddir'

mkdir -p unpackeddir; tar -xvf nodebb-backup-2015-11-10_1532-v0.8.2.tar -C $_

Restoring db (from inside unpacked directory created above)

mongorestore -d nodebb -u username -p password --dir=unpackeddir/nodebb --host=127.0.0.1:27017

Install

npm i nodebb-backup
