NAME

       BACKUP.D - Action configuration files for backupninja(1).

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/backup.d/*

DESCRIPTION

       To preform the actual backup actions, backupninja processes each action configuration file
       in /etc/backup.d according to the file's suffix.

       .sh       run this file as a shell script.

       .rdiff    backup action for rdiff-backup.

       .dup      backup action for duplicity.

       .maildir  backup action for slow, incremental rsyncs of tens of thousands of maildirs.

       .mysql    backup action for safe MySQL dumps.

       .pgsql    backup action for safe PostgreSQL dumps.

       .sys      backup action for general system reports and hardware information.

       .svn      backup action for safe backups of subversion repositories.

       .trac     backup action for safe backups of trac repositories.

       .makecd   backup action for burning backups to CD/DVD or creating ISOs.

       These files must be owned by root and  must  not  be  world  or  group  readable/writable.
       Support  for additional configuration types can be added by dropping bash scripts with the
       name of the suffix into /usr/share/backupninja.

       The configuration files are processed in alphabetical order. However, it is suggested that
       you name the config files in "sysvinit style."

       For example:
                  10-local.pgsql.disabled
                  15-runthisfirst.sh
                  20-runthisnext.mysql
                  90-runthislast.rdiff

       Typically,  you  will put a '.rdiff' config file last, so that any database dumps you make
       are included in the filesystem backup. Action configurations which end with .disabled  are
       skipped.

       Example    templates    for   the   action   configuration   files   can   be   found   in
       /usr/share/doc/backupninja/examples. You can also  use  ninjahelper(1),  a  console  based
       "wizard" for creating backup actions.

SCHEDULING

       By  default,  each  configuration  file is processed everyday at 01:00 (1 AM). This can be
       changed by specifying the 'when' option in a backup action's config file or in the  global
       configuration  file. Special value 'manual' will disable scheduling for the backup action.
       It is possible to run the backup action manually by  invoking  ninjahelper(1)  with  --run
       command line argument.

       For example:
         when = sundays at 02:00
         when = 30th at 22
         when = 30 at 22:00
         when = everyday at 01
         when = Tuesday at 05:00
         when = hourly
         when = manual

       These values for "when" are invalid:
         when = tuesday at 2am
         when = tuesday at 2
         when = tues at 02

       A  configuration  file will be processed at the time(s) specified by the "when" option. If
       multiple "when" options are present, then they all apply. If two configurations files  are
       scheduled  to  run  in  the  same  hour,  then  we  fall back on the alphabetical ordering
       specified above. The "when" must occur before any sections  in  the  action  configuration
       file.

FILE FORMAT

       The  file format of the action configuration files is "ini style." Sections are created by
       using square bracket. Long lines are connected with a backslash. For example:

          # this is a comment
          [fishes]
          fish = red
          fish = blue
          [fruit]
          apple = yes
          pear = no thanks \
          i will not have a pear.
