Short Description
Bamboo DIY backup scripts, dockerised.
Full Description


This is the source of the docker image redmatter/bamboo-backup.
It repackages the Bamboo DIY backup scripts, with basic
settings appropriate for Red Matter. More work needs to be done to make it more generic, to work with other databases
and deployment combinations. In its current shape, it works with MySQL as database and using rsync for home directory
backup. Archive formats tar and tar-gpg are supported.

It also comes with an Amazon® S3 sync client based on s3cmd tool. See S3 backup section below for config options.

How to use it?

On its own, it is configured to do daily backups into the volume /bamboo-backups. It is designed to be deployed on the
same docker host as the bamboo instance as it needs volume access to the bamboo home directory.

You can run the container using the command below.

docker run -d --name bamboo-backup \
  -e BAMBOO_BACKUP_USER=bamboo.backup.user \
  -e BAMBOO_BACKUP_PASS=bamboo.backup.user.password \
  -e BAMBOO_URL= \
  -e BAMBOO_BACKUP_EXCLUDE="logs secret.txt" \
  -e \
  -e MYSQL_DATABASE=bamboo \
  -e MYSQL_USER=bamboo \
  -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=database.password \

It will then run a cron task that will create backup every midnight. In order to copy the backup archive into a safe
place, you may use the below formula.

docker run --rm -it --name copy-bamboo-backup \
  --volumes-from bamboo-backup -v /path/to/a-safe-place/:/safe-place \
  busybox cp /bamboo-backups/* /safe-place/.

AWS_S3_BUCKET - Bucket name
AWS_S3_BUCKET_PATH - Optional path within bucket

GPG Encrypted Backup Archives

If you prefer to create GPG encrypted backup archives, rather than plain tar balls, you need to specify
BACKUP_ARCHIVE_TYPE=tar-gpg. The GPG encryptor can be further configured to do either symmetric or asymmetric
encryption by using the variable GPG_MODE. For GPG_MODE=symmetric you would also need to specify a passphrase using
the variable GPG_PASSPHRASE. If you choose GPG_MODE=asymmetric, then you will have to specify a GPG key using the
semantics defined in GPG documentation (man gpg).
