Full Description

Bluemix mariadb cron backup container

This image provides a cron daemon that runs daily backups from mysql to directory /backups/.

It is recommended to connect this directory to a VOLUME

Originally forked from AckeeCZ/mariadb

Following ENV variables CAN be specified (HAVE TO be specified if you won't use --link):

  • MYSQL_HOST contains the remote host (hostname or IP) connection string for mysqldump command line client option -h
  • MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD password of user root who has access to all dbs
  • CRON_SCHEDULE cron schedule string, default '0 2 *'

How to run the container on Bluemix?

With --link to mariadb container

cf ic run -v volume_name:/backups --link some_mariadb:mysql -e CRON_SCHEDULE='0 1 * * *'

Without --link you need to specify the HOST (hostname or IP) and password

cf ic run -v volume_name:/backups -e -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my_secret_pw
