mongobackup-s3

A simple docker container to backup MongoDB to S3, restore backups, and list backups. Easy to integrate with cron.

Usage

Backup

To initiate a backup: (you can now pass in --env DB=[db] to only backup a specific db)

docker run --rm --link mongo:mongo --env AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=123 --env AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=123 --env S3BUCKET=bucket firstandthird/mongobackup-s3

Customizing backup names

The naming used by backups can also be customised through environment variables:

  • DATEFORMAT accepts a Unix date format. Defaults to: %Y%m%d_%H%M%S
  • FILEPREFIX to add a prefix to the start of the backup's name. Defaults to blank.

Example
To add a file like mongodb.2016-02-08-03-10-20.tar.gz to your AWS bucket:

docker run --rm --link mongo:mongo --env DATEFORMAT=%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S --env FILEPREFIX=mongodb. --env AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=123 --env AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=123 --env S3BUCKET=bucket firstandthird/mongobackup-s3

List

To list the backups on S3:

docker run --rm --link mongo:mongo --env AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=123 --env AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=123 --env S3BUCKET=bucket firstandthird/mongobackup-s3 list

Restore Latest

To restore the latest backup on S3:

docker run --rm --link mongo:mongo --env AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=123 --env AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=123 --env S3BUCKET=bucket firstandthird/mongobackup-s3 latest

The sort order is used to determine the latest backup. If a FILEPREFIX is defined, this will filter the bucket list results. If using a custom DATEFORMAT, ensure the sort order will still represent the correct date order.

Restore

To restore a given backup, where [backup-file-name] is the name of the backup file you would like to restore:

docker run --rm --link mongo:mongo --env AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=123 --env AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=123 --env S3BUCKET=bucket firstandthrd/mongobackup-s3 [backup-file-name]
