Full Description

postgres-backup-local

Backup PostgresSQL to local filesystem with periodic backups and rotate backups.
Based on schickling/postgres-backup-s3.
It can backup multiple databases from the same host by setting all databases in POSTGRES_DB separated by comas or spaces.

Usage

Docker:

$ docker run -e POSTGRES_HOST=postgres -e POSTGRES_DB=dbname -e POSTGRES_USER=user -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password  prodrigestivill/postgres-backup-local

Docker Compose:

version: '2'
services:
    postgres:
        image: postgres
        restart: always
        environment:
            - POSTGRES_DB=database
            - POSTGRES_USER=username
            - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password
         #  - POSTGRES_PASSWORD_FILE=/run/secrets/db_password <-- alternative for POSTGRES_PASSWORD (to use with docker secrets)
    pgbackups:
        image: prodrigestivill/postgres-backup-local
        restart: always
        volumes:
            - /var/opt/pgbackups:/backups
        links:
            - postgres
        depends_on:
            - postgres
        environment:
            - POSTGRES_HOST=postgres
            - POSTGRES_DB=database
            - POSTGRES_USER=username
            - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password
         #  - POSTGRES_PASSWORD_FILE=/run/secrets/db_password <-- alternative for POSTGRES_PASSWORD (to use with docker secrets)
            - POSTGRES_EXTRA_OPTS=-Z9 --schema=public --blobs
            - SCHEDULE=@daily
            - BACKUP_KEEP_DAYS=7
            - BACKUP_KEEP_WEEKS=4
            - BACKUP_KEEP_MONTHS=6
            - HEALTHCHECK_PORT=80

Manual Backups

By default it makes daily backups but you can start a manual one by running the command /backup.sh.

Example running only manual backup on Docker:

$ docker run -e POSTGRES_HOST=postgres -e POSTGRES_DB=dbname -e POSTGRES_USER=user -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password  prodrigestivill/postgres-backup-local /backup.sh

Automatic Periodic Backups

You can change the SCHEDULE environment variable like -e SCHEDULE="@daily" to change its default frequency, by default is daily.

More information about the scheduling can be found here.

Folders daily, weekly and monthly are created and populated using hard links to save disk space.
